Contour of the counter

I was doing a little contour drawing today. When you focus on the contours things don’t necessarily line up (like the pepper mill) but I feel that the drawing can sometimes be more dynamic than if it’s mathematically measured. Charles Reid is the king of contour drawing. Have a look at his energetic lines.

        Thanks Shari, happy holidays to you too!
        I am happy to report that I have managed to post a picture a day so far for each day of advent. None of them painted from life, but still. Getting into the habit of daily painting, no matter how crazily busy it is at work. *proudofmyself* 🙂
