Select Your Objects and Pick Your Subject

Back to the Drawing Board

Avoid shapeless objects or objects with cartoon or caricature detail. Realistic, accurate detail is better for learning. Save the action figures and cartoon characters for another time.

Pick a few objects as possibilities, and then you can select from the group. Try for interesting shapes, but ones that are basic, geometric, and manageable. Possibilities include

A few pieces of fruit. __ Some veggies.

Or, if you are feeling really confident, a toy animal, a toy car, or an old doll might be just the thing.

Make yourself a little collection of possibilities. Put two or three together. Then try another combination. Look for shapes that complement each other. Play around until you have made a choice.
