Representational Drawing of an Odd Shaped Object.

I admit that I borrowed this idea from a class my daughter took.

The purpose is to develop observation skills.

It is a good practice to draw something that is not part of your mental inventory- you have to look at it.

We took a soda can and partially crumpled it. This reduced the cylinder shape by giving it wrinkles and folds. The crumpled can will have many angles with light reflecting that require observation.

This illustration was done in a sketchbook with an hb pencil.

One of my many rules is to look at the thing you are drawing as much as you are looking at the drawing you are making of the thing.
