Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Apple on a tissue in the sunshine, value study.

Graphite drawing on paper, 7 in x 10 in.

Nicely done! Paper is so fun to draw, sort of like drapery; harder than it looks!

Hi Peggy:
Thanks for checking in, and it's great to hear from you!
Yes, as I was drawing the highlights and shadows on the folds of the tissue, I was thinking of the similarities and differences between this and fabric... texture, translucency, weight, all the things that make an interesting subject for drawing! Thanks for your comments!
