Yay! I'm back to sketching in my Moleskine book! The pages are so smooth after doing all that doll sketching in the Canson sketchbook. Much better! :)
The Every Day Matters challenge this week is to draw perfume, so I set these two up with a spotlight and sketched away. All the doll sketching paid off. I was more sure of myself when sketching these. The perfume bottle behind is frosted, and has a fuschia and black cap, and a black tassel and a gold band around the top. The egg-shaped bottle is new (got it for my BD) and is clear glass tinted at the top with fuschia gradated through purple at the bottom. It has a silver band below the cap.
This sketch is with my workhorse pencil on the M. buff colored paper. I wanted so badly to shade/color these bottles, but I have let so much other stuff slide while I did the AEDM challenge that I need to play catch up with the house and our clothes. I may go back and do a shaded/colored one though later. There's a whole world of shapes and colors in a bottle of perfume with a spotlight on it. The shadows also had color and fascinating shapes in them. Anyway, I scanned this one as is, pencil on paper.
The scanner scanned the paper as white. I darkened the pencil sketch with my photo program in this sketch. When I scanned the sketch in my photo program and darkened it, the lines came out blueish. What's up with that?
This is the first EDM challenge I've done in a while. It feels good to be back! :)
