I have been trying to spend about twenty minutes a day sketching. I am getting better, but I know I have a long way to go. Here is a still life of a shoe I did.
I realize I get so focused on the object I am trying to draw that I forget that it does not just float in space. It is only as I am posting this that I noted I did not draw anything into the background, not even a shadow. Well, t least it looks like a shoe.
