|It would have been better to draw this pear after the simple study in the lower right. I get in a hurry to start shading!|
Back to sketching from life for today’s sketch. And back to drawing things too wide and short. I wish I had started with the quick study of the underlying geometric shapes in this pear — I think it would have helped me get a feel for the subject better than starting with the angles. I keep forgetting to do them until after I’ve already finished the initial sketch and felt frustration with the shaping and shading.
