EDM – Day 2

Day 2 – “draw a lamp.”  I drew my favorite antique lamp, a gift from a dear friend.  It has a solid base that is brass or brass-colored, but a tall column of white glass, topped by a white glass globe, and a clear glass chimney.  I am always terrified it will shatter into a million pieces.  I love it!

Sketched with 2H and 2B pencils, Conté black pencil, and watercolor.

Everyday Matters – Day 1

I have challenged myself to draw something every day.  Whether or not that happens, remains to be seen.  I will follow the suggestions  on the Facebook page for Everyday Matters.  The first assignment – draw a shoe.  I decided to draw my baby shoe, which I am assuming is the first shoe in which I walked, at the age of 9 months.  In keeping with the fashion of the day (the 1950s), my mother had my shoes bronzed for posterity.  The pair sits on our bookshelves, collecting dust.  But, they make good bookends!
