Shadows bis

The inspiration this time is
the shadow of my lamp. The yellow tone of the tableau comes from the sun through my window shade.

I chose to draw 3 shadows either produced by my ceiling light at night (right) or by the sun at slighlty different times in the afternoon (left).

Again, on a textured paper that I pinned directly to the wall, I traced the contour of the shadows and completed the drawing with woodless graphite pencils and sticks.

Without the shade, the scene is much brighter. I like that we can better see the colored and white reflections on the white wall.

I will further experiment with shadows but this time on white paper and will somehow include the reflections.

I hope I’ll discover something unexpected that I didn’t even think about while imagining this new series.
