Vase Drawing

Even though I love to draw I don’t do enough of it just for pleasure alone.

A tonal value sketch is a good exercise to keep your eyes sharp and the drawing hand in tune with what you see, not what you think you see.

Today while watching the rain sprinkling down through my studio window it was lovely just to sit at a table and draw from life this little vase that has been in my procession for a considerable amount of years.

The drawing isn’t perfect but it was enjoyable.

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
- Salvador Dali
