Drawing Together Episode 49: Drawing Fruit

I just couldn’t resist this simple still life of fruit for today’s lesson. We’ll keep it simple here and focus on the fundamentals: Line, Shape, Value, Form, Texture, Proportion, and Composition. Follow along using this reference image: https://bit.ly/2ZNDelh

  1. I actually consciously avoided my instinct to start with line and followed your method Scott. It was hard for me but turned out ok! I think my smooth paper is giving me struggles with blending, as I’m used to charcoal paper. Seemed like the charcoal kept making lines I couldn’t blend well. Good lesson again!

  2. Mine are a bit odd shaped… so must be organically grown lol. Thanks again Scott for another great session. Oh, I used vine charcoal for my basis and built from there using charcoal pencils.
