Nothing. Grapes can't talk.
Ha! Ha! I'm just having a little fun with this week's Sunday Sketches...
Last week it was bunnies, this week I've been studying elephants. Ever since I found the elephant in my shower I've been itching to paint more elephants. I've discovered that sketching a subject in different ways (traditional, left-handed, contours, etc.) really helps me get a feel for what I'm drawing - it helps me look closer and pay more attention to overall form as well as details.
This drawing started out as a one line elephant sketch, then I added some fun details as described by Carla Sonheim in her Oaxacan Dotted Elephant tutorial.
Carla's book is one of my very favorites! (If you want a little taste of what's inside, you can visit her blog and check out her tutorials.)
