Today is my fifth day doing a July sketchbook challenge from Tinkerlab. Today’s prompt is “Growth”. I considered a few other ideas, but my mind kept going back to some comparison images of seedlings at different stages of development. These images always fascinate me.
I have to admit that I rushed a bit today. As such, I focused more on shape and proportion rather than shading and detail. In any case, the sketch still manages to convey most of the changes that occur to this plant as it moves towards maturity.
I can see myself using the reference image again to emulate some of those interesting shapes. I think that it also might be worth using a single page for each stage of the seedling in order to add sufficient detail.
Anyway, I hope that those of you that are embarking on your own challenges are doing well. Feel free to tell me about it by posting in the comments section. I’d love to hear about it.
