Here is the quick sketch of the finished coffee cup done for the online class where we are learning to draw an ellipse. I think the back of the ellipse is a bit high and not quite round which can be corrected with a kneaded eraser.
Yesterday was spent working on an art project on the computer. From that project will come notans and thumbnails, rearranging elements for a more pleasing design. Whether the rearrangement turns out to be more pleasing or not, the main thing for me, is to be aware of what can be done, how it can be changed, and why it needs to be changed.
