The Drawing Studio: Drawing Fundamentals 2, Week 2

For week 2, week experimented with texture. We arrived at class to find a large still life setting in front of us that included some yucca plants, cacti skeletons, and rocks. We all started out by roughing out the outline using graphite powder. We then took our graphite sticks, various erasers, chamois, and other tools to complete the drawing.

Here is the result:
