Our guest postress is the wildly creative Rhomany!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful "little" prompt today!
How often do you look at things? I mean, really look at things, take in all the details, the nuances, the subtleties? Have you ever noticed that you 'see' more when something is really small, than when it's big? It's easy to miss something when you're faced with drawing a building. You sketch, approximate, try to do the best you can in the time you have, skip over the things you don't feel you can capture adequately.

When something is small, you have to look at it and notice all those tiny details. You can't capture a needle and miss out the eye, you have to draw it somehow. So let's do that. Find 10 objects, no bigger than around 1-2 inches in size. Small things that have interesting features. Then draw them roughly to scale, in as much detail as you can. You'll find a really fine pen or pencil is just the thing for this sort of work.
If you enjoy the little details and studying tiny things, Andrea Josephs does amazing work in ball point pen and does a lot of these 'little things' exercises.
