Block-in sketch of three apples

Daily Art 01-27-18 block-in practice of three apples

For today’s sketch I went back to really simple objects, and increased it to three apples instead of two. I found it helpful to have multiple objects to get the block-in accurate. I was able to look at the negative shapes and relationships between things like the tops and stems.

If I could get myself to see all subjects simply as shapes to draw envelopes of, things like the tree branch that challenged me would be more successful. Quieting the part of my brain that wants to name what I’m drawing…that’s the key I’m continuing to work toward.
