Lamp #6 – A Worthwhile Fail

I really thought this would be accessible. It should have been! I still believe!

However, I’m displeased with all three results, but that’s ok. Live and learn and sketch again!

The charcoal is disproportionate, BUT… the candle bulbs came much easier than expected.

I had trouble with the top. There’s clearly a square that covers it, but I couldn’t capture it, BUT … on the pen version the curved “chains” are nicely curved and seem well balanced.

A better approach would have been to take the time to do legitimate perspective, at least on the pencil version. I’m not sure how to do that with more permanent mediums, so I took a shortcut on all three. Version one has better proportions, because I could still erase where the angles were off.
