Session #309, Work #303

“Just a simple clove of garlic” I said. Little do you know of the subtle nature of the curves of garlic until you really focus down hard on them and try to reproduce on paper. I think I redrew the shape of this clove three time but I got close enough, even after this I’m not very happy with the outcome. I really think I could have gotten much close with the values, but spending only one hour on a drawing doesn’t leave much time for improvement. One of these days I will focus hard on a subject that demands many hours of work.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
