Sketch practice #97

Daily Art 01-08-18 still life sketch in graphite number 97 - big pinecone

I was feeling ambitious with today’s sketch! I got back from CraftHack tonight in an inspired mood so picked up this big pinecone off the shelf to sketch. It helped that I didn’t think to hard about it — I just jumped in and started sketching.

I caught myself from getting too focused on the individual parts early on by making long lines that follow the directional growth pattern of the scales. The class I watched today for my online atelier class was super helpful. I kept it loose and rough, but I can totally see the pinecone and basic shadow areas in there. Feeling good about this one!
