Part 2. Project 3. Exercise 2 Detail and simple line

Detail and simple line.

I made a number of sketches of natural objects before decicing on my final exercise. Most of these objects have interesting textures and are an extension from the previous exercise on textures

I bought a turk’s head squash last autumn and kept it on a window sill. Very gradually it has changed shape and eventually developed some mould which has flattened its contours and wrinkled its skin. I chose this as my object to make a continuous line drawing and was pleased to find that it was not too difficult to keep my pen on the paper for significant parts of the drawing. I had been worried that to do so would make it very difficult for me to keep the proportions, but whilst these are not absolutely accurate I have still managed to capture the overall shape and characteristics of the decaying fruit.
