Hatched colored pencil mug study

With today’s sketch, I was hoping to capture the essence of the white mug with gestural lines and expressive hatching lines. I’d love to be able to make sketches that look spontaneous, like I was moving more of my body when drawing instead of staying close and tight to the paper.

I’m not there yet — maybe standing up for a fresh perspective on the paper and holding the pencil differently would help. I’m at that middle zone where I can be accurate if I work slowly and methodically, but the drawings lack ease. I’ll get there with deliberate practice though!
