This is my 2nd effort to draw my ceiling fan in my bedroom. I study that fan often because at night it is an excellent study in shadows. And in how objects that are known to be identical create optical illusions when the light is different and when viewing them from beneath them [like when I am laying on my bed looking up at it]. I know for certain the blades of the fan are identical, but they never look identical. The ones closes to me look much bigger, the one on the backside of fan looks shorter and thinner. I tried to draw the fan as I saw it. I changed the metal on it to copper in my drawing just to see how I liked that. I also added in another blade! I drew this with graphite and then painted it with watercolor pencils and a wash of water over them. It is on 6 x 8 inch watercolor-specific paper. Copyrighted and I, Gloria Poole, own all rights to all content, all art, all photos and all words on this blog. See full notice below. I also photographed it with more than one camera and I have photographed that fan itself several times on different cameras and cell phone cameras. This is sketch 2 of my ceiling fan. I also uploaded it and posted it. I think I posted the other one but I would have to go back through pages and pages of paper notes I write each day to find where I posted it. Also, I posted a surreal sketch I drew w/ chalk below:
I drew this with chalk on a purple cardstock paper 8 x 11 inches in size. I drew it, signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it today 20th March 2016 at 12:51pm. This is only one of my blogs that I regularly post art I create too, and I include links to others below. I photographed it clipped to my large portable drawing board propped on my giant A-frame easel. I have a plethora of easels and portable drawing boards fortunately and I use all of them at various times. Copyrighted.

This is my selfie in spring 2014 but I look the same except thinner and my hair is longer. I still put my hair in lop-sided pony-tail when I walkabout or paint to prevent hair from getting into my eyes, or into my paints or inks.
