Continuous Line Drawing: Pens and Pencils

photoAnything can be the subject for a sketch, and in this instance I used my makeshift pen holder as my subject. Continuous Line drawings are one of my favorite ways to practice capturing a still life. Because your pen can never leave the page it forces you to really consider the edges of things you are looking at. I started with the cup and it took me a while to remember how to transfer what i’m seeing to paper. By the time I got to the pens and pencils at the end I was doing much better. The scissors were attempted in the middle and I would be curious to try it again. It was difficult to figure out how to handle the depth and the double image of two pairs of scissors.
