Drawing – still life

This One and Twenty exercise got off to a slow start.  After agonizingly drawing the main sweetcorn kernels I realised that time was about up on my allotted 20 minutes.  Was I to leave my food in place until I next got a few minutes to continue?  In 38°c heat, on my outdoor balcony, that wasn’t an option.  With my husband calling me to lunch I just had to grab the pencil and go for the rest of it in one minute flat.

OK, no shadows on the turned corn leaf but to draw the leaf, apple and shadows in a single minute was pretty impressive I thought.

In future I need to put the timer on for 15 minutes, then rush the last 5 minutes.  The results seem looser and more flowing.
