Practice 2/14

Here's the sketches from my 2/14 Drawing in Pubs class. These were done at Art Nouveax, a nice little place with old school hurricane glass lamps and light fixtures everywhere. This first one is a chair. The difficulty is getting the subtle transitions between shades that are so very close to one another. This is done in pencil.

For the next one, I deliberately choose a still life that was rich in detail. This is a side table underneath a lamp (the tree trunk-looking thing) with a bottle and chord and some leaves from another tree. This is also done in pencil. The challenge here was details with bright highlights and deep shadows.
