Notes on a pineapple

Standard

Today I decided I needed to begin my ‘a drawing a day’ task due to the fact that I am not consumed by my job because it is the school holidays.  I set up to begin drawing a pineapple with a black ink pen…two continuous blind-contour line drawings and an hour later  was hooked! I thought that I had the ability to do a ‘quick’ drawing but today it wasn’t possible, I had become obsessed with understanding the contours and details of this form.  I had made mistakes in my initial drawing of the leaves and absolutely couldn’t leave it be.Image

As you can see it is not finished but tomorrow I will attempt another and perhaps again the next day, and the next until the fruit is ripe enough to eat.
