Potted Plants #1 and #2

Two more attempts at the potted plant -- this time really observing it. The first attempt was very deliberate and slow. I tried another time and just tried to do a looser sketch. By now the plant and I are becoming one. We are really seeing each other. I truly got so much from the book "The Zen of Seeing" I highly recommend it for people who are just learning to sketch/draw.

THESE ARE SO NICELY DONE!!! I love the one on the right best -- you can see how you were able to loosen your lines and sketch with so much ease! BRAVA!!!

Yeah, the plants are great. And the blind contour drawing really is valuable, I think. (Though I haven't done it in a while.) Good work.
