For this exercise to show reflective light, I used 2b pencil, water soluble pencil and 2b graphite sketching stick.
The use of the water soluble pencil clouded the highlights which were totally lost on the vase and side of the perfume bottle. I tried unsuccessfully to save the picture with adding highlights of white pastel pencil.
The table top went wrong looking like a muddy mess of graphite sketching stick. I used a small piece on its side to attempt to shade like I would with charcoal.
I was very disappointed with this as I was happy with the shapes and angles of my objects.
