Sketching Exercise: Apples

I like drawing apples. They seem to be a subject that can be both very easy to draw but one that can also be quite challenging if you want it to be. For the two watercolour sketches, I set the bar quite low and was simply hoping to render something that was more or less recognisable as an apple.

Some onions…

Actually, it’s the same onion only sketched using different mediums with, obviously, varying degrees of success.

Hmm. Didn’t notice when I scanned these that the drawing on the following page could be seen faintly, or, in the case of the brush pen onion sketch, quite intrusively. Something to remember next time. That’s the thing with these Moleskine notebooks, I love the look and feel of these notebooks but the pages are very thin.
