Drawing Terra Cotta Pots

A collection of square pots on the table in the back yard looks like good drawing practice.

My scribblings on tracing paper.

I've put together a few posts where I find interesting things and try to draw them. These aren't drawing lessons, just my scribblings with a pen. I welcome you to join in and try to draw these images too. Let's get started!

These square terra cotta pots are basically a bunch of lines at different angles. I sat outside and tried to draw them, but I have so much trouble seeing what is parallel, the angles, etc. so it comes out so awkward. Then I tried to work from the photo, tracing with a ruler, because I'm so analytical I wanted to make sense of the lines. The second photo was solarized in photoshop - to see the light and shadows. To "see" what I cannot see.
