Summer Drawing

I've been working a bit this summer on trying to boost my limited drawing skills, and I've taken to photographing the things that I draw, so that I can go back and compare.

I was using the flip-flop for an exercise wherein I drew the same object from various angles. This was the first angle I drew it from, and then I rotated the stool and did another angle...

I trust everyone is familiar with the whole still life concept.

The exercise here was to focus on a rectangular object. I managed to find two that overlapped.

Here I was drawing from a photograph (that someone else took; I never saw the scene in person).

This is good practice. If anything, though, you're focusing a lot on edges and making them very prominent. Real objects don't all have outlines; you just see them as patterns of light and dark.
