EDM #243

I recently joined a Yahoo group - Everyday Matters. I was hoping to spark my drawing with the weekly challenges. The first challenge to click for me was #243 Draw a pillow. One of my favorite things to draw in my college art classes were paper bags and fabric so a pillow was ideal.
I got out my favorite pencils - HB, 2B and 4B and my ancient stub and an hour later:


The pictures aren't that good. The sketchbook is too big for the scanner and the camera flash made the drawing too light.

Despite your technical difficulties, it is apparent that you were able to achieve the feel and depth of a pillow in your drawing. Beautifully done!
