Daily Observational drawings

I started doing a daily observational drawing again, in the middle of April.  I managed to do over ten months the last time I did it, so hoping I beat my own record.

I have started with a simple white ceramic milk jug and a matching cup and saucer.  Today is just the milk jug.  I need to try and slow down my 'looking', and really SEE the object.  I find it difficult to slow down when working.  When I paint I work very quickly.  I am hoping that the drawing will help to balance this out.

Daily Observational Drawing No.1

I am also posting one of the very old paintings, in the 'use a ruler' style of painting.  I still can't believe that I painted in this way.
