drawing class: first homework assignment

My first homework for class was to draw two still life pictures a day in my sketch book.

These are all in pencil.  In class we learned a technique where you hold up a dowel rod to measure angles between items and then draw the angle on the paper as reference points while sketching.  It's the strangest thing but it works!  When I start a drawing based on these angles it seems all wrong, but as I keep measuring and sketching and tweaking and moving it things all miraculously works out in the end. 

Here are some of my better sketches.  (I'll show my fails on another day.)


This looks surprisingly like my real sewing machine.
