It’s the end of the week with Lesson 2: Everyday objects. I’m always optimistic that I’ll get several pages of sketches done in a week, I certainly intend to. I feel lucky to have completed 2 pages! Here is the first page of objects from the dining room:
And here is the second page with objects from the bathroom. I used the Tombow pen for 4 of the objects, then used the permanent pen and watercolor for the toothbrush. The glove form is a favorite of mine. I have 3 of them and they are displayed on a shallow shelf in the bathroom. I feel like I’m getting a ‘High 5!” when I see them. They were in service for many years at a factory in northern New York before they came to live with me.
I’m not saying that organic objects such as leaves and flowers are easy to master, but there is a forgiveness to them that these man-made, symmetrical objects do not afford. The Tombow pen is very fun to use for shading sketches. As I continue using it I’ll be more adept at shading and incorporating watercolor as well. In the meantime, I have a lot more sketching to do!
