I was going through some things in my office today, trying to organize, and I ran across this drawing from college. It was for my Color & Design class my freshman year. Our final project was to create a color image of a fruit or vegetable using ruling pen, which is a truly horrific
device that many universities use to inflict pain and endless hours of agony upon young students (see the second picture). This drawing was just a preliminary sketch/study we had to do in pencil of our chosen fruit or vegetable. I chose a radish.
Looking back on it, there are things I would handle differently. Especially the leaves. They're so stiff, and kind of flat looking to me. The delicate nature of them doesn't appear to be conveyed in the drawing. But, I guess it wasn't too bad for an 18/19 year-old baby college student. Man, time sure does fly.
