Day #085 – Bedside Lamp Drawing

Today’s drawing is my second attempt at using toned paper and white pastel highlights. I picked a subject which I thought would lend itself to the medium: my bedside lamp. Because of the low light in the room it was a little hard to see how my drawing actually looked as I was doing it but I think it turned out reasonable in the end. I’m happy with the light and the base and I think the cord looks quite good. Not so happy with the books or the ‘stem’ connecting the base to the light (shading looks a bit inconsistent with rest of image).

Inserting highlights is definitely a ton of fun. I’m looking forward to practicing more in this way in the future.
