Yesterday morning while waiting to go sketching with my friend I did a quck drawing at my desk. As is often the case, the areas that first caught my interest (above) ended up being invested with the liveliest line, the most energy, the most abstract interest.
Because the sheet was big enough, I drew the ceramic cup and the things in it. Although there's some liveliness in the pen point and pencil and feather, the composition becomes conventional and boring with that verticality right in the middle. I always like cropping, zooming, turning pictures upside down or sideways. A lot is revealed.
This drawing is so much better than any of the ones I did outside later on!
