Drinking Glass with Salt and Pepper Shakers -- Pencil

Sketching from real objects is harder I have found than  from photos or artwork. The latter usually has the shadows and composition there. When I draw from real objects, there are so many decisions to make, and it really stretches me to bring the 3D to 2D. The above objects, sketched for practice, are from my kitchen. The shapes of the objects are what caused me to draw them. They were fun to do.

  1. I think you are so right that it is harder to sketch from "real life" objects- I guess a photo or artwork has already been rendered into 2 dimensions, which is what makes it seem easier.
    The satisfaction of sketching what you see isn't to be underestimated though!
    Love your drawings - what pretty salt shakers.
