Up-Close Still Life

The entire inspiration for this project?  This image right here:


I do not even know the origins of this image as it was unlinked on Pinterest.  But this nice little drawing is the perfect example of an up-close still life.

Projects: Select something you really like or something you think is really interesting to look at.  Study it.  Draw it in great detail (big and close up).  Work on your craftsmanship in this one, that is how your drawing will stand out.
