The first exercise fulfilled. While listening to the History Channel I drew my new walking sandal using my wc pencils as they were still on my desk since my return from Piran. I know the difficulty of drawing something from memory, so I put the sandal in front of me and drew it as I saw it.
The photo I took today is not from the same angle as the coffee table it was sitting on is a bit lower than the couch I was sitting on but the result is not so bad. I could have done a lot more with shading (instead of the color) but I enjoyed using the red/black pencils as much as I love my red sandals.
Next time I'll take a photo of the object I'm drawing while drawing, so to be better able to judge the result.
