Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

Daily Sketch: Food in focus…maybe

Leave a comment

Here are my sketches for yesterday and today. I didn’t get time to post anything yesterday so this is a catch up.

Last of the Xmas Pud – graphite in Strathmore visual diary.

This was quick and in taking the photo I realised that I didn’t lay the plate down flat enough. I didn’t do as much work on the background as I’d have liked. But that is okay as this is just a sketch. Hopefully as I work through this year my sketching will improve, just as my drawing did over the last twelve months.

I also need to get over my ‘must get it right or not at all’ feeling – no more tearing up sketches I don’t like. 🙂

Three Tomatoes, conte crayon in Strathmore Visual Diary

Quite happy with the two front tomatoes, like their shape. I haven’t sketched in conte before. They certainly feel different to soft pastels – and there is less dust! Will have to experiment some more with these. Only spent about 15 minutes on these, so with more time they would improve.
