A Collection of Potted Plants

5x8" drawing moleskine, pitt pen, quick sketch on site

waiting for an observation in my daughter's classroom (a montessori thing)

across the courtyard, a collection of random potted plants

with 15 minutes to work, had to get the lines down quickly

interesting to compare to a photo taken a few days later and look at the lines using a filter in photoshop

 sketches from photographs and it's about drawing, not the drawing


question: do you prefer to draw from photographs or from life?
