I detest doing still life! Why draw objects when you can draw people? So this was one part of my Commercial Art assignments that ensured that I quit the course in a hurry!
You can possibly see my heart was not in this 😦
Did I mention these were done with a nib, which you dipped in a bottle of black India ink? You had to have excellent control over the amount of ink you ‘drew’ into the pen!
Done with great disinterest, for some odd reason, this crumpled sheet of paper found his approval :-p
