The subject of this drawing is a mason jar that has three folded pieces of paper in it. The jar was a bit of a challenge. The shape of the jar manages to be round and square at the same time. I couldn't quite figure out how to convey the ways that the light went through it creating shadows on some parts of the sides, but not on others.The pieces of paper however were damn near impossible. I must have redrawn them ten times. Trying to figure out how the hard lines of the papers matched up with the shadows and the partial shadows was...maddening. Tomorrow I will be working on a simpler subject matter.
