Pot and Onion
My drawing/painting teacher told me today that when she had studied in the art college they did different sets of still-lifes for 3 years non stop. That could make a great painter of me or kill my hunger to draw and paint forever :-)).
I did this still life for 3 full sessions (total of 9 hours, lovely tea breaks included) and I was full. I asked the teacher to leave my drawing as it was and to start new project. My problem was (and is) I could not put all this small strokes (parallel with equal pressure) any more... So the pot and onion turned just fine. The folded cloth behind is jammed and looks like a loaf :-)))
Final: I like it very much and it is the result of really hard work.
