Here are my blind contour studies of the still life:

I still have to do the exercises for contour cutting and contour stitching. I did get a bunch of fabrics out of my stash and only have to get a few for the color wheel - mostly the grays - I found I had a very nice medium gray, but the inbetween ones are not quite there. I may try to dye the grays with the Tsukeniko inks if I cannot find them at the store on the way home tomorrow. I did find a few in the printed side, but need a couple more there too.

Beautiful lines, Suze. I especially like the grapes in the first drawing.

I'm glad you used plastic fruit. I am going to pick some up today & get busy doing my exercises too. Nice results.

Your drawing look great! You did a better job of lighting your still life than I did. I love the colors that reflect in the shadows.
