Assignment: Draw a Small Object


Drawing #1 “Small Object Still Life”
Materials needed: Sketchbook (Click here to buy a Moleskine, but any sketchbook will do). Pencil.
For this assignment you will find a small object, position a light source on it, and draw it. It could be a salt shaker, a little figurine, a toy car, etc. For the light source you can use a desk lamp or even some tall candles. Just make sure the light is coming strong from one direction. If light is streaming in through the window in your kitchen sit down there and draw! Give yourself 20 minutes for this drawing. Set a timer, or an alarm clock.
