Sketching from a photograph

I have discovered that my sketching definitely goes better when I have something to copy. A few weeks back, I sketched a photo I took of seagulls on the beach. Since then I made a sketch of a Marcel Duchamp photo which I wasn’t super thrilled with, but the following sketch: Man Ray’s 1931 photograph – Fleurs, turned out much better.
