Sessions #1 – in my drawing ZPD

First Sessions Online drawing lesson. Pencil feels good in hand. Warm up exercises followed by a sketch of an everyday object. Goal was to sketch object without getting fussy about it. Just jump in and draw. Coffee pot evokes Fred’s morning brew. I know, top perspective is off. Not sure I like this staccato post but will give it a try as a stream of consciousness post, without getting fussy about it. One thing is certain, I am in my drawing ZPD! And am going to try a sketch a day.
