The perspective had to be hard on that drawing. Good job.

Great job on the jugs. I keep getting drawn to that ref too though I must say I hadn't noticed the tiles on the wall till I saw your version.

Your pen and WC work is excellent Rainy! Of course I'm partial to the Cadillac sketch.

Catching up on your thread after too long an absence. Great job on the artichoke, and good work on the jugs as well!

Re: Rainy's Stillman & Birn Sketchbooks

Thanks, John.

This one is in the S&B Beta that I was using for the IFJM as I had pages left over. Done with a pen that was running out of ink on my lunch break. I may add water on afternoon break but left my watercolor set at home on the table so can't add color.

These were the crackers for my soup I was eating for lunch laying on my desk by my pen holder. No a very inspired drawing, but. . . what was in front of me.

Re: Rainy's Stillman & Birn Sketchbooks

I think it's marvelous that you do draw and paint what's right in front of you, seeing the artistry in the every day.

Re: Rainy's Stillman & Birn Sketchbooks

If we can't draw what is in front of us or what we see every day how do we expect to ever draw the great picture! I doff my cap to you for doing this regularly, it's why to my mind you are getting so incredibly good at what you do!

Re: Rainy's Stillman & Birn Sketchbooks

What Margo said! Even the lettering on the crackers looks realistic. When I try to do that, it just looks like my handwriting.
