Class Drawings (Still Lifes)

Class Drawings (Still Lifes) - student project

I feel like I'm getting worse! (insert laughing/crying emojis that skillshare strips out)

I can't tell if all the measuring is making me so crazy that I lose sight of what I'm trying to draw, or if it's that I'm trying to draw more complex things, or if I just have totally unreasonable expectations. But I feel like the worse I do, the more perfectionist/obsessive I get, the worse my drawings get and the less I enjoy them, the more I procrastinate doing them, the more I'm slowing my progress at learning to draw. So. Frustrating! Any tips for how to get out of this rut?? 

Aiee - anyway, sharing a few of the drawings I did for this class so you can see my, er, "progression"... I thought I did a really good job with the 1st two, but then got progressively worse (you can see all my eraser marks where I kept redoing everything a billion times!), and then the very last one I did is... well, you'll see...

My last one, which I know is really off, but no matter how much I tried taking different measurements I just couldn't figure out quite what was wrong in order to fix it.

Here's hoping I do better in the next class!!
