more on edges and perspective

the next few drawing tasks have been a challenge, mainly as the intended subjects weren’t available!  First was to be a flower with a few leaves etc which, being autumn, are in short supply in my back yard (so I resorted to a plastic one which looked as unspeakably awful in real life as it did on the page!) then it was a half peeled orange which, being as today should have been shopping day but we didn’t make it, I didn’t have either!  So I drew the back of the aforementioned pastic flower!  there is a lot to be said for drawing things you actually like…. drawing ugly plastic just because it’s about the right shape for the excercise is crap, you can’t enjoy looking at it so you can’t enjoy doing it or feel good about what you produce.  Hmph.
