Still Life with Sheep

Black conte crayon again. In this drawing the thing I was fighting with the most was the tin canister. I’m dissatisfied with it, but at some point it’s good to just declare that something is finished and move on. I’ll try the tin again in another drawing sometime.

And a quick sketch of Emma. It’s very different trying to draw her in real life, as opposed to working from a photograph. This is a small sketchbook…slightly larger than 4″ x 6″…the size of a snapshot. Just trying to capture a small moment…Emma in her heated bed with her blanket and toy.
