In the art group I have been attending for over a year now, we currently have a theme on light and dark. And as I need an excuse to keep uploading pictures onto this blog, I decided to share the first batch of them .
I was doing still life drawing and I ended up drawing this easel in the corner of the room. The piece on black paper was an attempt at depicting the light sources in the room, and how the light was reflected onto the wooden surface of the easel. I think it worked well.
The piece on the white paper was really just a study of the actual object, with little effort done on the toning or shadows on the piece- I was going to work on the shadows using the black paper.
