Drawing practice from the land of cylinders and sunshine

I’ve noticed that when I read tutorials, or watch people giving tips on drawing, there is almost always a lot of emphasis on looking for basic shapes in whatever it is that you are drawing.  One of those basic shapes is the cylinder.  Here is a sketch that features some cylinders grouped together.  Nothing too spectacular, but I kind of like it.

Drawings of cylinders

Thought for the day

A long time ago, I read How to Win Friends and Influence People.  The book was written by Dale Carnegie in the early part of the twentieth century.  I recently felt the urge to read it again, but I couldn’t find my copy of the book.  I like listening to audiobooks when I am driving in the car or doing chores, so I downloaded it from Audible last week and I’ve been listening to it for a few days now.  I don’t want to go into a lot of detail right now, but I’ve noticed that the book still makes a lot of sense today.  Yes, some of the references are definitely dated, but overall, the message it gives is every bit as relevant today as it was when the book was first published.  I suppose that is one of the big reasons why the book has remained a classic.  If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend checking it out.
