Continuing with my drawing series of still life’s ~
Dark Vase and Fruit, a graphite drawing (9×12). This piece was drawn on Blick Drawing Paper (smooth side), trying out a new supply I just received. It wasn’t as thick as the Strathmore I usually draw with, but the smoothness allowed me to utilize that aspect nicely for the tablecloth and background. There are still some issues with the symmetry of the vase that I’ll go back and address at a later date, but for now the drawing is taking a rest.
I love working up light/dark contrasts in drawings and in this case the light against the dark vase was perfect for what I was trying to accomplish.
