642 Things to Draw #23 - A Paper Clip

Paper Clip in Pen and Ink by Ana Tirolese - 642 Things to Draw

This was obviously rendered freehand. I should have rendered this using a ruler/straight edge and a circle template. It would have been far more accurate.

However, some people may find that there is more charm in this less than perfect image.


  1. I hadn't drawn for over 30yrs because "accurate" and "perfect" kept getting in the way. I started freehand drawing a couple months ago and just enjoying drawing. I think this is great!! Ralph M.

    1. Thank you for posting, Ralph. I perfectly understand where you are coming from. I suffered from the same affliction, although mine lasted less than 30 years.

      I am so happy to hear that you are drawing again. Don't worry about perfection. Draw for the fun of it. The rest will come.

      What is the worse that can happen? A picture does not go as planned. It is not the end of the world. You just pick up those pencils and try again!
