Sketch practice #64

Daily Art 12-10-17 still life sketch in graphite number 64 - ceramic frog

My nephew loves to make art and for Christmas every year gives us one of his creations. Last year he took a workshop painting ceramic figures, so one of the gifts he gave us was this charming frog. This sketch doesn’t show his paint markings, but I love his round belly and silly smile so thought it would be a cute subject.

It took a fair amount of time to get the form to look OK. When I finished that stage I loosely added shading, trying to keep the pencil strokes in one basic direction. This feels like a step closer to developing a consistent line style, which is one of my goals for this 100-sketch focused practice project I’m doing.
