EDM # 43 Draw something ceramic
HB, B and 3B pencils. I started something simpler but then I decided to give this a go. It's a little Christmas bell that Paul made at school in November 1997 so he would have been 6. Naturally, he asked why on earth I wanted to draw it and Mark said it's the sort of thing only a mother would love! It goes without saying that it is a little treasure so I wanted to record it by drawing it. I have actually simplified it a little as there are more blobs of paint on it than shown but it would have made the shading confusing.
I used a 3B pencil for the outline and shade and my goodness these soft pencils feel so nice!
