I am frustrated with the scanner again. So I've included two reproductions of this week's sketch. The first is the scanned copy, the second is a picture take on my phone. Should I keep scanning the images or switch to using snapshots?
The Art of Drawing with Pencils. I tried doing a still life of a real mug and got hopelessly frustrated. My sketching skills are still rusty.
But there is hope, I'm noticing improvements. I have even found myself more patient with the drawing process. Normally, I want to work fast and have a finished piece. I actually felt more relaxed and steady while working on this sketch.
