Sketch practice #95

Daily Art 01-06-18 still life sketch in graphite number 95 - handmade cross body canvas purse

This weekend we were able to enjoy some camping near Superior, AZ. The weather during the day was pretty much perfect, although at night it got rather cold (at least for us). We got to take the dogs to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum and we all had a great time — especially because it was overcast and we didn’t have to wilt under the sun.

For my sketch, I chose the purse I hang from a hook opposite my seat at the dinette. I liked that it was fairly simple with a softly structured shape.

It ended up being taller than the actual purse. I could have caught that if I had checked the shape before moving on to details. Despite that issue, I’m happy with the shadows on the fabric and the metal buckle!
