Day 150

I tried this twice. I was provided with a photo of a sheet draped over somebody. The photo is complex with many folds and layers of fabric. So, initially I tried to create the drawing exactly like the photo. Somewhere in the first five minutes I got lost in the folds and couldn't make sense of it anymore. I scrapped that and tried again. For my second attempt I decided I wasn't going to worry about accuracy. The sheet is white but I used my B series pencils because I wanted to make bold lines. I contoured the sheet and then formed the folds. Although most if it turned out good, some of folds inverted due to the heaviness of the pencils I chose. I'm okay with that. After doing this drawing my interest in fabric has increased. I had fun with this one.
