A drawing a day …

Pencil still lifeI really, really need to do more drawing.  So here’s my drawing for today.  I’m a bit rubbish with pencil, but it does force me to consider values in the way that a line drawing does not.  Tomorrow is another drawing.

My art teacher last week said ‘it doesn’t matter if you mess it up.  You’re an artist.  You can always make another one.’

That’s a comforting thought, isn’t it?

One thought on “A drawing a day …

  1. I love this still life. It’s restful and well-composed (I never realized how difficult it is to arrange still life until I tried it. Now I revere it when I see it.) I also like the gentle – not bold – shading which aids to it’s grace.
