This is the first drawing I have done since the Spring. I am a little rusty, but it is a good start. Plus, it was my first attempt at a dark background with highlighting.
Below is my source of inspiration: these lovely little cantaloupes from a farmer’s market I visited this past summer. As soon as I bought them, I knew I would draw them, so I set them up and took a photo.
That photo sat in my phone for months. Until the time was just right to pick up my pencil again.
I am glad I did. I missed drawing. It is so calming.
My rendering is imperfect but it just motivates me to do even better on the next drawing.
Art is everything.
