This exercise is included in my book, "The Art of Drawing Still Life" published by Walter Foster Publishing, Inc.

I drew this composition on plate-finish bristol board with an HB and 2B pencil. A kneaded eraser was used to clean and lighten certain areas. Follow the steps on the next pages and you will see how easy it is to develop a fairly complex subject.

My tutorials and free lessons are being plagiarized by numerous websites both foriegn and domestic. They are copying my images and text and presenting them as their own original lessons. I am trying to curb this by placing subtle watermarks in each image. I hope they do not distract you. ALL tutorials on my website, including this one, are for the express use of visitors to the website of William F. Powell and may not be copied, pasted, or posted on any other website or used or reproduced in any other manner without the express written permission of William F. Powell
