Bowl Drawing

I want to make a hand-carved stamp with a simplified hand holding a bowl symbol, so I decided to see what a more realistic version would look like first.

It is impossible to hold a bowl in front of the mirror and sketch effectively, so I had to work from memory/imagination and am amazed I managed it!

This started with pencil, then ink and now coloured pencils. I have done it in Linda's Drawing AB along with another drawing.

So, I have achieved two goals tonight and feel sooo good about that!

The proportions are good but I love the detail and shading in the bowl - pulls me in. Lovely.

Cool, thanks everyone. Sometimes, it just works, other times it doesn't. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am glad that what I had in my head came out successfully.
