Session #315, Work #309

I picked up a few Satsumas from the grocery today. I may end up doing a painting of them as the green and orange is really nice. I also changed up my paper tonight for a sketch book of really flat almost plate like paper. I was having trouble with my earlier drawings taking on too much texture from the paper. The texture isn’t bad, it’s just too distracting for such small drawings. I think this very flat paper worked out much better even without a blending stump.

I really need to begin focusing on my values though, as you can see below, the values are very far off, even in a relative since.
