"EDM #7: Draw a Jar, Bottle, or Tin From the Kitchen"


Now, what, I ask you, could be more jar, bottle, or tinny than three glass containers from the kitchen, well, two  anyway, filled with wine corks, lentils, and marbles? 

So far, I like this sketch best of this series.  There's just something about that brandy snifter with the wine corks. 

I was going to put a quote in here from Danny Gregory, author of among many books, "Everyday Matters," but after pillaging the entire house this morning - I can't find it.

So let's just say this:  Doing a bit of sketching on a regular basis is as good for you as eating your curds and whey, maybe better. 

Come over to the 509 Artspace this morning for a Figure Drawing Session with us.  The model, "Smash," a local roller-derby queen will be wearing her costume!!

I completely believe that they are glass! Fabulous!

My fave too - such a great rendering of glass. That's way beyond my capabilities right now, so I can totally appreciate the skill! Are they colored with markers, pencils, paint?? Just a fabulous sketch!
