From this weekend's drawing event, I chose the Japanese Lantern and decided I would try to make it a night scene.
8 by 10 inches on gessoed hardboard, Gray Pas Specialists, all blending done with paper stumps. The white photographed brighter than IRL.
I did try to suggest a light source within the lantern.
I guess I should call this a WIP. I see a couple of touch ups that need to be done. The right leg needs rounding and some shadowing from the reed passing in front of the lantern.
Also the camera lightened and brightened the whites more than IRL.
Suggestions for improvement welcome.
