Had fun with this. I love pear shapes. I do find them tricky to paint, but I’m happy with this attempt.
I have a beautiful vase by ceramic artist Brenda Mader. A single tulip looked very elegant in it, but I found that my little sketch didn’t really capture the elegance. By the time I got around trying a different approach, the tulip was fading fast, but still attractive, to my eye anyways.
First, in Stillan & Birn Zeta sketchbook.
I’m behind with my posts, but the sketching continues. One of the lessons in the book I’m following suggests drawing a child’s toy robot. Lacking such a subject, I thought would draw Gumby instead — something simple to sketch at the end of a long day. Ha! Gumby turned out to be more complicated than I anticipated.
