Day 103

Another still life of objects found this time in my parents' house.  They have a lot of odd antiques.  Choosing what to put in the composition was quite hard.  It's good to have a mixture of different objects: some simple, some complex, some boxy or cylindrical, and some organic.

I think I did ok on this one.  It's hard to make still life look solid and grounded.

Here's a photo of the scene:

I made the clock too tall and the side of the metronome is different.  I put it down to me having two eyes, not one like this camera, although I did cover one eye a lot of the time so stop the perspective moving too much.

I also put the plant label in the wrong place but decided it didn't matter.  It would ruin the drawing to try and move it to where it is in reality because I was drawing in black pencil and couldn't use an eraser.

Time: 1 hr 10 mins
