Paper Bag 2


I took Teri's challenge and again drew a paper bag. The first one I did in the summer is truly better. The values are better. It actually looks like a paper bag. If you did not know, you might think this was a blanket or clothing. What did not work for me here was improper planning, so the bag went off the page. I haven't got the "edge" thing down. I still feel like I have to draw the edge. It might have been easier if I shaded the paper first. But in the end drawing seems very tedious to me. I love seeing other people's drawings and I marvel at their ability to make a drawing that looks like a photo. I would swear Felicity's drawings are photos. She's just fooling us . I just have more fun with the sketching. I wonder if anyone else feels the same way.

Yah for you Marilyn!!! Isn't it interesting to do the same thing and have it come out so different.

This does look like a bag with all kinds of wrinkles. I like it!

I'm with you on sketching for the fun of it. The more I do, the more I throw the rules out and just do what I want to achieve what I had in mind.

I agree with Teri ...! Colors, shapes -- very very good! I find that sometimes the most simple thing is the most difficult to draw ...

Hi Marilyn,
I also feel the tedium of drawing - especially when I'm just starting one! The fun part is really in the final details, isn't it? Try using tinted paper - you then just add the darks and the highlights. It really helps me.
I love the apples by the way - wonderful job!
