Everyday Matters: Day 3 – draw a purse, Day 4 – draw a cup.
Day 2 – “draw a lamp.” I drew my favorite antique lamp, a gift from a dear friend. It has a solid base that is brass or brass-colored, but a tall column of white glass, topped by a white glass globe, and a clear glass chimney. I am always terrified it will shatter into a million pieces. I love it!
Sketched with 2H and 2B pencils, Conté black pencil, and watercolor.
I have challenged myself to draw something every day. Whether or not that happens, remains to be seen. I will follow the suggestions on the Facebook page for Everyday Matters. The first assignment – draw a shoe. I decided to draw my baby shoe, which I am assuming is the first shoe in which I walked, at the age of 9 months. In keeping with the fashion of the day (the 1950s), my mother had my shoes bronzed for posterity. The pair sits on our bookshelves, collecting dust. But, they make good bookends!
