Glass Marbles & Jacks

Glass Marbles & Jacks, 12x17", graphite on paper

Another of mine from the drawing invitational. It features two marbles from a big and always growing array of glass marbles I collect during my travels. Jacks are great to draw because of their bold values. For my still life setup I tried using a piece of mirror for the reflections but it was too stark. I used glossy photo paper instead - that captured just the right amount of reflection, which were drawn in with a very well used paper stump.
