Abstract Still Life: Sketches

Two quick sketches as studies for my abstract still life assignment (forgive the poor lighting when photographing the images). The first is a bone, but sitting in front of it on the floor, it looked like some kind of cephalopod head, especially with the power cable draped across it.

I also really found the clamp interesting, especially from the side angle where I initially observed it. It was such an interesting shape, and made a great pattern of folds in the backdrop.

Planning to incorporate both of these elements into the still life. We'll see how it goes.
