Weekly Drawing Thread Sept 4-10 2006

It was a really tough challenge this week. I can't say I enjoyed it at all. But I did it and this is the finished drawing.



In coloured pencil on cartridge paper.

Really not pleased with the bottom of the glass but I couldn't get the spheres right. And the green mass in the middle was tough too, but I suppose a challenge is good for you!

It was a tough challenge! The pic wasn't too fab to start with, and the glassy object was quite unconventional - you did very well! I like the way you captured the light glinting off the top of the bead.

It looks like a great challenge and I will be doing it but I am going away to Spain tomorrow so I'll either have to rush it or post it when I get back!
