Start with a Light Sketch to Position

As usual, you should begin with the lightest line, your H or HB pencil, and a light touch to draw in the basic shapes and angles and relations between things. Take your time. Don't rush. A complicated arrangement takes more time. Consider the following as you begin:

^ Start with the lightest of directional lines for each object.

^ See how they overlap.

^ Try to see each one in its own spot, but relative to the others.

^ Imagine that you have x-ray vision and can see the backs of your objects, where they touch or are close to one another.

^ Make sure you have left enough space for each.

Try Your Hand

The planning lines in your work should be light, and need not be erased later. They can add a vitality and they show the process that you have been through, too.
