Espresso for One and Adrianna's Gerber Daisy

I am rereading Alla Prima II by Richard Schmid. Presently, I am studying his chapter on "Drawing" which he defines as the "arrangement  of patches of color that are the right shape and size".

This small espresso maker has great shapes to practice. This is in contrast to the little gerber daisy below which has lots of lost edges and few sharp, easily defined shapes.

Schmid reminds the reader that drawing requires ongoing practice. this reminder made wiping these small boards multiple times worthwhile.
