Alis' Challenge 2

Drawing free hand is not something I do very often or well, I can't get my eye coordinated with my hand.
I say freehand as I used to do technical drawing when I was at school and found that easier. So you can understand why I was drawn (no pun intended) to the patterns on these pots made by the Anasazi Indians.

The original pots are grey and black so they worked well in the pencil.
I love the shapes of the pots, the patterns on them and the way the tones of black and grey create the textures.

My Dad arrived while I was drawing this. He is a beautiful artist. Your drawing is improving he said. My head is now very big!!!

I've got a brilliant artist or a dad too, some times this is so inspiring other times its really intimidating.

I agree with him- the drawing is lovely

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I will continue to practice the drawing in the hope it will get easier.
Hugs, Alis
