Bottles, Cans, and Other Shiny Things

______Just the other day, I was in the process of organizing some computer folders when I stumbled across both of these charcoal drawings that were done last semester in Drawing I.  Upon unearthing them, I realized they hadn't yet been posted on the ole' bloggy-blog--which is terrifying since I like to keep my things up to date and documented!

______The bottles below are a bit wonky, and some of the above are a bit, er, organic... but hey, it's Drawing I, not astrophysics (sorry, that was kind of sassy--I am trying my best to make things more symmetrical, though).  I can't wait until my art classes get into that "draw what you want" mode, because still life drawings tend to make me anxious instead of making me relax and enjoy what I'm drawing.

I think these are pretty fabulous, i love the way the background is distorted through the bottles.

and it's much, much better than anything i ever did in drawing one!

I love the bottles! You have such an amazing talent. I love it when people are able to share their artistic skills on their blogs.

Goodness, I scrolled down and thought "Something about these photos is off..." and then I realized they were drawings! Haha, oh Ali, you have a true talent. I'd love to see what you come up with once your art classes start up again! :) You're phenomenal, you truly are :D

Wow, these are lovely! I wish I had some art skills. I love the black and white especially, makes these drawings so special! Charcoal has always been one of my favorite types of drawings to look at.

I love how you handle reflective surfaces. One of my preferred surfaces to look at/tackle really. Charcoal's kind of badass medium, too, so go you!

I'm a lone shopper! When I shop with other people I tend to listen to more of what they have to say and not what I actually think about a piece of clothing. Then I wind up with pieces other people love but I bought them for myself, so then I never wear them! Tragic! hahaha
