A Design a Day – Day 32

Today’s design, like yesterday’s, was done on my trip to Chicago, this time on the way back.  Because I was drawing freehand and the train was bumpy, I cleaned up any stray marks in the weave of the earring design later with a gum eraser and an eraser shield:

The shield is placed with the appropriate sized opening over the area to be erased and the surrounding metal protects areas that you want to preserve.  Pretty nifty!
