I drew some this morning and fruit wasn't a strange motive. My kitchen is filled with fruit my friend @reko bring home every day. I forgot to take any in progress pictures so I guess this doesn't qualify for the challenge, but I thought I share it anyway.
In this drawing I'm working on rendering edge. Marco Bucci express it perfectly in his tutorial I linked to below. Hard edge, soft edge and lost edge. If you look at my drawing you will see that I created hard edge by placing one area of almost no graphite next to one with lots of graphite. If you want a realistic look you should always do this because the nature does not contain any actual lines only contrast between areas. The same principle is applied in painting.
There is no lost edge in this drawing but you will find one in the apple painting linked to below - between the apple's shadow and cast shadow.
Hope you will have/had a great morning!
