back to things

and back to Brian Curtis' "Drawing From Observation". This is exercise 11. 4 on foreshortened circles. I am not good at drawing foreshortened circles. I do not enjoy drawing foreshortened circles. And I have been reading the excellent book "Talent is Overrated" by  Geoff Colvin, which states that  best way to excel in a given field is to engage in deliberate practice: "activity designed specifically to improve performance, often with a teacher's help: it can be repeated a lot; feedback on results is continuously available; it's highly demanding mentally; and it isn't much fun."

Which means I'm going to be spending the rest of the week drawing foreshortened circles.

These circles are a liquor bottle, a martini shaker, and a couple of shot glasses.

I can see those coming in handy.
