Promise 8: Lemon No. 3



A very difficult day sketching. I simply cannot see what I need to see...especially the midtones. I squint and look and move the light and it only helps a tiny bit. I think I could draw it if I could only 'see' it. I have to practice seeing. It seems that is not an easy thing to do. So on to tomorrow and the lemon...one more time.

I am seeing more and more value with each lemon drawing Susan, so I must protest, you are definitely seeing!

I protest too! I see midtones here! I wouldn't be afraid to go darker with the darks to give you more range with the midtones. Just a thought from a painter.
