Sketch practice #76

Daily Art 12-19-17 still life sketch in graphite number 76 - paper bag

This was an interesting exercise: I think the proportions today are better than yesterday’s sketch, but it definitely has less life to it. Which I guess is not a surprise because I was more focused on getting the general block-in more accurate than describing the secondary angles and shapes.

I spent quite awhile measuring the height and width, but noticed about 2/3 of the way through that the short side of the bag was much too wide and the outer edge needed to be brought in.

I want to work on this one some more, maybe by doing several smaller sketches instead of one larger sketch. I think it would help me get more familiar with the shapes of the subject and learn to recognize the proportions more quickly.
