Drawing exercise series

A lemon from a friend’s garden make for a simple series of little drawing exercises. Numbered in the order I did them but random in choosing the exercise itself.
1. Contour drawing
2. Light, mid, dark tonal blocks – 3 colours
3. Deconstructed shapes
4. Collage of shapes
5. Coloured pencil shape, no outline
6. Realistic pencil drawing
7. Realistic pencil drawing with focus on negative space – sort of
8. Single colour with focus on dark, mid, light tones and a random collage bit (why not?!)
9. Collage of tones

All that from a little lemon. I think a lemon tea cake is coming up.

These days I don’t find I have much to say as far as blog posts go. Do you find that some times too? Little point in saying something for the sake of saying something.

But, the drawing keeps going.

Hope you are enjoying an easily paced weekend. It’s lovely here today.
