Drawing Study: Yellow Vase

So, after my oil painting of the yellow vase this afternoon (See Homework: June 26, 2010), I decided that the drawing was pretty bad. Therefore, I took the vase, placed it at the same angle on my table and just did a standard pen/ink value drawing of it.

This is much better. The shadows are similar to what I painted for the vase, but the structure is much better. The neck is more vertical and even and the body of the vase is more spherical.

In this situation, I had a double-light which caused the odd set of shadows coming forward and going back.

I now need to figure out how to get the more accurate drawing done on the canvas.
