While I really liked the chili pepper lights, I also wanted to do an actual light bulb for the practice it gives me in drawing. I knew from the scissors challenge that curves and subtle shading were tricky, and I wanted more practice. This was astonishingly difficult to draw. I actually threw up my hands and walked away yesterday, thinking to myself "Who am I kidding? I can't draw." I was very discouraged. This morning I thought I'd try again because I didn't want to admit that I was defeated by, of all things, an inanimate light bulb. And it didn't look so bad. There was lots of erasing though, and the paper was pretty roughed up by it so the background wash is not so nice. You can still see some of the lines that won't erase anymore. But it is recognizable as a light bulb. I'm glad I persevered, because I think I learned a lot from it - maybe more about persistence, discipline, and determination than about drawing - but I won't ever get better if I walk away and get discouraged.
