I finally had the time to sit down and draw this evening. Did both some free sketching and some work on the pumpkin painting. Although I have a vision in my head of how I want this piece to turn out, I'm finding that rendering it in fine detail is difficult. I think half of it is that the general vision for the behavior of the plant doesn't completely match up with the actual physiology of a pumpkin, and also I need more practice drawing the leaves. Too bad it isn't Fall.


I also finally did something I've wanted to do for a while and recorded myself as I drew. I've always felt like the process I use to get from point A to point B on my better drawings is lost because I get in the moment and then forget exactly what I did. Unfortunately I don't think I quite got there today (but I didn't get frustrated! I realized where I was doing something more difficult and let myself mess up) but I still think it will be useful to go back over. I also recorded my screen as I did the pumpkin drawing. One thing I'm noticing off the bat is that I'm going back and undoing a lot of things and petting lines a lot. I think I need to work both on drawing my lines with more conviction, and drawing my overall piece with more confidence, letting myself continue on with the composition a bit longer before deciding it's not heading in the right direction.


I want to keep going but I think it's a good stopping point for this evening. I already know what I want to try for next time.
