DRAPERY

I have been eager to use my Cachet Earthbound® sketchbook that I have owned for at least five years, but that I seem to open only rarely. I was drooling over some studies of drapery by Dürer and Da Vinci earlier today, and it gave me permission to think, for a minute, that I was capable of rendering fabric like them. This is from a picture I took of my husband's daughter's arms while she was drawing. The folds on her sweatshirt were perfect.
Pentel 2B graphite and white charcoal.

I am impressed. I tried to convey folds on the US flag as I sketched Obama delivering the State of the Union address last night but was very disappointed with the results.
