EDM#32 Draw something metallic
This is a coal scuttle. I have drawn this many times. Mainly because I am lazy and it lives directly opposite my armchair. I have never once got the shape right - and it still isn't. But I love the colours; the contrast between the metal and the coal. I like the way the inside becomes SO black. I think that these two 'materials' (is that the right word?) work perfectly in graphite pencil.
And now for another question. I am never sure which of these works better when scanning and posting pencil drawings. The top one was scanned in 'colour' the bottom 'grey scale'. Which looks the best? Any opinions or advice would be much appreciated.
