These practice exercises help induce quick sketches based on simple shapes. Initially, I had only 30 seconds which increased to a minutes, and finally 3 minutes. In the first sketch, one can see distinct use of circles, ovals, and lines to create a basic outline. In the second sketch, I lost sight of the accurate angles of my hand; therefore, when looking at the third and longest practice sketch, it is evident that I marked the finger angles and locations in.
This is a more detail practice still life based on my. smaller sketches. I used triangulation to achieve accurate positioning and sizing. If I were to improve upon this exercise later on, I would add more details and more contrast with smoother shading.
