I may be working on it yet. Or maybe not. I was only going to draw my sink after all, and the light and my point of view were changing all the time. I'm tired.

Since I use to spend the first 5-10 minutes scaring myself at the sight of the blank page and wondering how on earth I'm going to draw that every time I'm about to draw something, I've decided to record the first mark on the paper for any drawing (It's easier on Flickr with 'notes'). Maybe I'll learn something. Maybe not.

(and no, there's no giant mutant faucet in there,
I just got the proportions wrong :) ...)
