A pretty sketch for Autumn.
Such beautiful work!
So pretty. My mom used to have hurricane globes like this with candles on our mantle piece. Your sketch reminds me of how much I loved the way it looked.
Wow! I thought this was a photo! How gorgeous! I have at least 4 of those hurricane lanterns or whatever they are called. Popular here in central VA.
Wow this is amazing. Just beautiful.
very pretty! I love the softness of pastels.
I LOVE this! Your treatment of the glass globe is great, and the candle and holder are as well. The only thing that detracts from it is something I always have trouble with too...the globe is not the same on each side. I have a bird bath like that in one of my paintings. The best thing to do to avoid this, I think is to make a paper cutout of the shape of the one side and then reverse it to use to trace around to get you started on the other, so they will be a mirror image. But, your artwork is superb!
ah yes... this pastel was done many, many years ago. I have since learned a few tricks that would have made this more perfect, like continuing the glass globe across the candle... the way it is now, the top of the candle looks like it is 'outside' the globe. Again... lots of things I have learned since this was done. However, I do love this piece. Marie, you should (after your move) do an art piece of some kind and join in those two artsy memes I do on Sundays. It would be fun.
Your work of art is lovely! Is it a pastel drawing? The Bend area of Oregon is beautiful. There is lots of sunshine even when it's cold. I live near Portland but in a rural area. The country is where I'm most happy. I look forward to hearing from you in the future and I'll be back to see what you have done, too!
This has a lovely tranquil feel about it. The glass really sparkles#SundaySketches
This is such an adorable artwork of a wonderful candlelight decoration and I LOVE it!
The orange colored candle is perfect for the season. Beautiful!
