Ink bottles

Fed up with not doing anything  for a long while, yesterday morning I took matters in my hands. Nothing inspired me, so I settled on sketching the ink bottles that were on my table. The page was prepainted with leftover gouache. I sketched the contours first blindly with one pencil, then corrected with a different color and finally added the shadows with watercolor.

 In the evening, I sketched a side table I have in my office where I keep a knick-knacks - a reproduction of Rodin;s hands, a crystal vase, a candle holder ...Colored pencil.
