EDM challenge # 9 was to draw Organised Chaos - Today was overcast with the hope of rain that never came, however, I did find time to sit with my sketchbook and draw the part of my lounge room that, at the moment, is in organised chaos. As most of you know we have to move soon so, earlier in the week, I started some packing. I'm using a corner of my lounge room to neatly store the boxes which mainly contain books, video cassettes and breakables from the rosewood cabinet standing behind the couch. I did a graphite sketch first and then emphasised lines and shading with a black ball-point pen.
EDM challenge #2 was to draw a lamp - This is my bedside lamp which has a ceramic stand and a fabric light-shade. Originally, it was white but I soon changed that. My room is based on a sea-theme so the blues work in very well. I drew this yesterday afternoon using graphite to lightly draw the shape and then I worked with Derwent Coloured Pencils from there.
