"Sketch of Books"

Today I'm showing you a quick sketch of still-life with books. It's a very simple idea and yet it gave me an opportunity to play with a complicated structure and a variety of sizes. So, on the whole, it was a pretty crazy task. I will only say that it is the kind of sketch you usually don't know where to start :))) Especially if it is supposed to be quick!

  2. Did you use a ruler at any point? Some of those lines are amazing if they were freehand! I love this one.

    1. No, they were all freehand. Thanks, Em!

  3. This reminds me of an art class I took years ago (when I was still living in Hamburg). We had to draw a pile of books, which seemed ridiculously easy at first - until you noticed that you got the perspective all wrong. Quite a chastising experience! :)
