A truffle a day

Moving right along to lesson two, I have drawn a truffle with a note card in the background. Hopefully, it looks good enough to eat. For me, there is much to learn about mixing colors and capturing the details in each piece.


Calligraphy was my calling for almost 30 years. After I retired, I have done very little lettering. However, I just had the "need" to do some lettering-to feel the flow of the shapes and to lose myself in the project. Guess that this is what drawing everyday is all about-the joy and peace that the action brings.

Have I told you lately I think you're amazing? No? Well, you are.

The truffle painting is just exquisite! The way you created the shadow for the wrapper suggests it is foil, reflecting light into that shadow. Beautifully done all around!
