Christmas Candles 1 - A Work in Progress

It is still bitterly cold, -2F (-19C) and with the wind chill it feels like -13F (-25C). The one nice thing is the sun is shining.

The Weather Network is saying the temperature will finally make it above freezing by the weekend, which would be nice as we haven't had a day here above freezing since around the middle of November.

I thought I would like to do a little more work on this drawing that I had started quite a while ago (see post on 25 December 2011).

First I added more details to the drawing of the candles, giving them a definite shape and straightening them.

Next I fixed the flames on the candles.

From there I used a black ink pen and darkened the base of the red candle and then added the wicks on each of the five candles.

I will post this drawing at a later date once more work on this has been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
