Drawing for 10 July, 2020

This photo looked easy, but it also looked wonderful:

Time for a Cup

And this is what I made:


Negatives: I went slightly off on the proportions of the spoon and the cup handle. And I’ve made the bird bigger relative to the cup than it is in the photo.

Positives: I’m really pleased at getting the proportions of the bird mostly right, even if they are a bit too big. And that I was able to use three different pencil grades to shade the different feathers the bird has.

I’m still wondering how to achieve bright spots and light reflections with pencils.
