EDM # 40 Folds
This week's challenge is to draw some folds in fabric. I knew I'd find something in Alex's room, probably on the floor! When Alex steps out of his jeans, he leaves them in the middle of the room just like this, as if he has vanished into thin air! I liked the label too - loose fit - it seemed very appropriate.
I shaded this with a B pencil as the HB's are beginning to feel hard. It felt lovely as if it was a stick of charcoal, and shading is so quick with it. The only thing I don't like is that it smudges so easily but even that is nice to smudge the shading with my finger.
Now I'm going back again to a couple of drawings that I'm not enjoying (unless next weeks challenge is more tempting!). It's been interesting doing these challenges and finding out which subjects I like and dislike. I've surprised even myself!
