Candles (a grouping)

Posted by PicasaEDM challenge 61 was to draw a grouping of 2 or more similar objects. I decided to draw these candles. This was also a personal challenge for me because I gave myself a time limit (no more than four hours). I know there are many people that are able to make beautiful drawing very quickly but I am very slow and can actually spend days on something like this trying to get it perfect. I know that drawing gets easier and faster (not that speed is the goal) the more you practice, but sometimes I think it is good to give yourself a limited amount of time to finish something. Well, it isn't perfect but I do feel pretty good about it. A couple of months ago I never would have attempted to do this.

Hi Karen; I've been away for several weeks and have missed viewing your Blog :( I'm back since last night and I have been going through my list of favourite Blogs while unpacking and doing laundry.(See my Blog and click on thumbnails).
I love this drawing of the candle holders!! You have really made lots of progress in your drawing, particularly in the shading and getting values (I'm still working on that myself)Hope I can back to drawing more, now... This is beautifully done and I admire your perseverance.
