EDM #92--Draw a brown paper bag




Here is my effort for EDM's challange of drawing a paper bag. I squinted until I had to refocus my eyes in an effort to see more values rather than the huge blur that had my eyes crossed lol.

Again, I need to work on more values on the scale of black to white. There are many beautiful shades in between I'm learning. I have only been working with 3 so far; darkest, mid, and lightest.

Also, I tried adding texture to the bag. I'm having fun learning more and more!

I think that my bag is kinda cute! Thanks for looking and as always your comments are very much appreciated!

I used 2B, HB, 4B, 6B pencils in this project

Great drawing! Bags are hard to draw too! All those little wrinkles and folds. You did an excellent job :)

What a great job on a subject I would think would be very difficult.

Hi! Pamyla: Thanks for leaving encouraging remarks for me on my blog. Your brown paper bag has really inspired my brain. It just so alive. I remember hating to draw brown paper bags. Then the bags became my teachers. Draw more! wonderful.

The texture in this bag is wonderful. It SPEAKS of texture. What a great job you've done.
