Still Life Challenge

Golly this theme was a challenge for me! I hated still life at high school, to the point it put me off doing art (that and a horrible art teacher). I thought because I couldn't draw realistic things I could never be a 'real' artist

Drawing from my imagination has always come more naturally and honestly I just don't have the attention span to sit and look at something for more than a few moments.

Materials Used: Watercolours, inktense pencils, fine liner and photoshop

I had a go drawing from a reference photo(picture in comments), but was really unhappy with my first more realistic attempt. I decided to redraw the same image from memory in my own style.

As artists(and humans) we all have our strengths and weaknesses. I've learnt that sometimes it is better(and a lot more fun) to embrace my areas of strength rather than stress out about areas I am not passionate about.
