Sketch practice #67-68

Daily Art 12-12-17 still life sketch in graphite number 67-68 - tomato pin cushion and sewing machine brush

Today I chose a couple of my sewing supplies and set an intention to keep the sketches light and breezy. Meaning not obsess about every nuance of the object, but rather get the main idea of the object across.

I’m loving my new lead holder and, surprisingly, the 2H lead that came with it. That super fine point on the slightly textured paper is a really nice experience. I need to remember to bring the lead pointer over to my sketching spot so I can get that sharp point back during the process.

The one thing I’d change about today’s sketches would be to improve the lines on the shadow side of the tomato pin cushion. It looks messy and erratic, and the rest of the suggested shading looks much nicer.
