I’ve been drawing for days, 20-30 minutes each day, in preparation for my next print project. I’ve started with a wine glass and have discovered that I lean to the right – how uncannily similar they all are!
Is that because I’m left-handed?
I took a glass (yes, filled with red wine!), photographed it and traced the outline to help with the proportions. Then I tried a few more freehand.
Not significantly better.
So how do others draw glasses and are their proportions and shaping better than mine?
I turned to the internet.
These looser, more sketchy, images caught my eye.
Determined to draw a glass that looked like it might actually stand I drew one side, traced and reversed it for the other. I then marked alongside the angles for the rim, wine line, and base.
Taking note of some other internet images I filled in the detail.
A week on from my start point I’m making progress. This now needs to be translated into something that can be cut into lino.
I love the energy of the grouping with yellow shading.
I know, fabulous, isn’t it? Unfortunately it’s a purchasable stock image. I’d love to say I drew it but I can’t claim that expertise.
Looking forward eagerly to see what you do with it.
Well, firstly I was forced to drink the red wine of course!
