         Drawing 1, A Texture or Object          For 10 minutes, draw a house plant. Some hints...
  • Look at the overall shape of plant and very lightly and quickly sketch that in. Is it a triangle, a circle, or a squarish shape?
  • Layer your leaves. Some will be in front of the others. Lightly draw in a few big, lighter colour leaves in first.
  • Now, working a bit darker, draw in some leaves that will peek out behind the big foliage. Start shading in some of the shadows.
  • Stems and pot are last. If you draw the pot first, then you can't overlap your foliage over it.
