Oil Lamp 1 and 2

Today I was at the Still Life class at KAGS and the theme was Lamps and Clocks.

There were a wide variety of clocks and lamps, everything from pocket watches to ornate mantle clocks, as well as a candelabra, silver candlesticks, oil lamps and lanterns.

There were two different glass oil lamps with various herbs, flowers and leaves in the oil with the wick winding its way through them. I decided to do a drawing of each of both.

Oil Lamp 1

The first one was shorter than the other, with flat sides and triangular in shape.

Its base was of thick glass which showed the lovely pale blue green colour of the glass as the light passed through.

The second one was much taller with the glass slightly curved on one of its three sides.

It had twine wound around the top of the neck of the glass and a green ribbon tied in a bow at the base of the twine.
