Still Life Drawing: Skull and Oak! Sketchbook V

Back to the Sketchbook!!!

Over the past couple of weeks I have made it my goal to get up half an hour earlier than I need to get ready for work and to get some quick sketching time in the mornings.

Using this time has been a great help for me to form this sketching habit and I’ll be using to cover a range of themes and subjects, I began with still life drawing, next week maybe I’ll do some master studies.

Another bonus aspect is that with it being so early in the morning, tight detailed drawings are not the way; this helps me to keep the sketches loose and fluent.

Drawing from life is a great way to gain a better understanding of light and shadow and to see a form in 3D and then translate it to 2D is far more advantageous than transferring an already flattened image.

Anyway, I’ll be posting again soon with the next few sketches!
