Mixed Media Lamp

This week’s piece is another still life that I drew back when I resumed learning how to draw.  This was done in mixed media however.  Back in those days, I played around with many different types of dry media like pastels, charcoal, drawing pencils, etc.


"Lamp", Charcoal, graphite, and crayon on 8.5x11 pastel paper

Not a bad drawing exercise.  All in all, I’ve come along way since then.  To be specific, this was done with black wax crayon, white wax crayon, charcoal pencil, and three grades of graphite – HB, 2B, and 3B.

Still life is a good way of practicing your drawing skills.  Unlike a landscape, light doesn’t change and in contrast to a live model, it doesn’t move or breathe.
