EM Challenge #14: Morning Views


For the Everyday Matters Challenge..."draw the first thing you see in the morning." Drawn in ink and colored with my Prismacolors. The Candle Holders are olive colored glass...I just got them and they are so pretty when the candle inside is lit. I love them. I actually drew this before I went to bed the other night (@ 11:59).

Well, tonight is the Survivor Finale, so I gotta get my boys in bed in a hurry. See ya later.

This is really nice. The candle holders simply glow. You have really captured a lot of detail.

Julie, I really like this. Can't figure out what the little circles on the right side of the lamp are. Is something hanging from the lamp, or did you just tire of doing the wall paper? I love all the detail too.

funny you should mention the little circles...I was going to explain that but forgot about it...I was just doodling the other day, and couldn't decide on anything to draw...so I was drawing circles...no reason...just playing around. When I drew this picture, I thought about using the next page, but didn't want to leave a blank page with just circles. So there you go. Even though the wallpaper was a bit crazy to do, the circles really had nothing to do with the drawing. =)

So much detail! All I see when I wake up in the morning is the inside of my eyelids for as long as possible. With autumn well underway here, it is dark when I get up anyway so I don't usually wake up until I am under the shower.

Cheers

Lovely warm tones and your details always amaze me! Interestingly I first thought this "seemed" more evening when I first saw it - and then read your comment about drawing it late at night. I like how the circles from your doodling ended up as part of the wallpaper somehow. Kind of a little craziness to balance out the straightforwardness of the scene.

Julie -- this is really nice! I love the way you've captured the detail and perspective without overdoing it. And didn't the Survivor finale turn out exactly the way it should have! :-)

Julie,
This is a wonderful illustration and it almost reminds me of my bedside table. Great rendering.
