Still life

5 Jan

Drawing a still life of something you find lying around in your home can be a humbling experience. You know the objects, and that’s the problem. Knowing and drawing is not the same, as I have discussed on this blog before.

It tests your ability to be honest to yourself, to see if you’re really trying to draw what you see, or are just faking it. If it’s the latter, you’re in big trouble, because it means you can’t progress beyond your current skill level.

Rats!

Still need to unlearn some of those bad habits, I guess.

That is all.
