Sketch practice #81

Daily Art 12-23-17 still life sketch in graphite number 80 - paper bag

It’s safe to say my enthusiasm for sketching this paper bag has seriously waned. I didn’t get much joy out of sketching it today, except for the fact that I used my new adjustable viewfinder. That was pretty fun!

The shape of the bag is more accurate than my previous sketches of it (#79 and #80) but I just used the ambient room light today which made for less distinct shadows. A good reminder that the lighting on a subject is so key.

I did make an attempt to connect the shadow shapes, but it wasn’t very successful due to the poor lighting.

Tomorrow, something new!
