Ha! Now you will know I am not vain. But it was an odd color exercise, and fun to do.

This is the last exercise in the book.

Still Life with Messy Corner

In this exercise we were supposed to draw an ugly street corner in 3 colors (colored paper + 2 colored pencils). The idea was to have lots of signs, angles, and negative space, and it would become beautiful. I had the flu so I had to settle for an ugly corner of my house, the messy corner I’d been staring at all day.
