So I first start to put some bottles and glasses on the table and try to draw using only one line but the result was not what I wanted, so I stopped and I just looked at the objects and then finally I drawn the drawing below with the idea to use negative spaces….
But I was not happy with the result. Indeed, I wanted to have a very lacquered surface so I choosed colour pencils first and then some pastel oil but still, not happy with the result, and I got the conclusion that I choosed the wrong subject and idea. Indeed, to have a lacquered surface I should have used acryl which would have been perfect for the result I wanted…..but I wanted more precision as well on my drawing and more contrast so I decided to start another one where the issues asked would be more respected as, in my point f view, was not the case in my first drawing.
So I choosed, this time a bouquet of flowers with a lot of leaves and some winter flowers. I choosed to draw only a little part of it and I add some fake butterflies and caterpillars as I have plastic ones…..
For this one I used black pencils, colour pencils, graphite pencils, marker pens, oil pastel.
The result is more colorful, contrasted with depth and light and I guess interesting. The choice of medium was much better for this composition.
