Still Life Day 3, Take 2

I thought I’d try quick sketching. So I added a light source and got out an 8B graphite stick and the only rules were no erasing (which I mostly stuck with except for the opening circle and a few smudges from hand drag)  and minimal detail.

It’s terrible. So terrible I’m almost ashamed to show it. But here goes…

I think in my head I imagined this brilliant abstract-y thing. Instead I got this mess. The metronome is OK, and up close the thread isn’t too bad, but the books are a disaster.

Learning to do a quick. Sketch is probably a good skill to learn, but I sure have. A long way to go…

Since tomorrow is busy I have to work ahead, so a fresh base outline for a third attempt was drawn, and I was able to somewhat redeem myself.



I'm a humble little Anglophile with obscure talents.
