Daily Drawing Day 5

I'm getting later and later with my daily drawings. I'm going to try to start tomorrow's at breakfast time rather than leaving it till the last minute! Here's my drawing for today…

These lovely marguerite daisies have flowered all summer and I've taken loads of photos one of which is what I worked from tonight. It's an interesting challenge to add tonal shading to something that's essentially white. I think the best way to tackle it is to actually draw the background rather than the object.

So that's today's little tip - look for the negative spaces between and around the objects that you're drawing and use them to help your study.

See you tomorrow for more,
