I feel I have maybe jumped the gun and looked at shadow and reflected light in my previous exercises, but for some reason I found this more challenging. I feel that the overall look is messy and I haven’t picked up the reflections in the coffee pot as well as I would have liked.
However, having worked on it a bit more I feel happier with the tonal range and am pleased with the shadows on the work surface . I can’t help but notice that all the objects I have chosen involve tea or coffee! Must be time for a brew.
