Sketch Pad

Here's a quick sketch (took about 20 minutes) of my husband's guitar case.  Getting the proportions and angles correct takes a lot of practice and I really need to do some drawing every day.  The problem is I don't always have the time or the inspiration for sketching.  I'm afraid I'm not one of those people who can just sketch anything;  I need to find the subject interesting.

Clearly there are a lot of perspective errors (not least the left-hand corner) but I'm getting there and it's good to look back on a drawing at a later date when you can really spot the areas for improvement.  However, I'm also seeing a lot of positives in this piece.
I'm off to pack a small sketch book and pencil in my handbag just in case.
