EDM Challenge - mug

I'm working my way through the challenges. This is another combo... sort of... since it's both a glass and a mug. I'll count this as challenge # 4. I had fun trying to do the ridges. It's so hard to get a balance between observing closely and loosening up!

What might help is to approach it as a stenographer might. Start by doing shorthand studies first to loosen up that hand. After doing several of these quick studies you'll become more familiar with the subject and can make those freed-up observations. All in all I thought this drawing worked very well.

Thanks for the ideas. I think I get nervous about sketching quickly...there's that mental block that it has to look "right." I should get beyond that I just do it...ultimately I will get it right!

This turned out very nice! The light in the base comes through just right.

Carla, interesting that you teach lit and writing, I have done so in the past. (I'm teaching fiction writing to seniors next spring.) And I loved your (posted) connection of freewriting with this freestyle of visual journaling. Now if I could only draw all the things that pour through my head--much easier to write it!
