Candle by Candlelight
I did this entirely by candlelight and really didn't have a feel for how it would turn out since I wasn't sure which colors I was using, nor could I always see where I had just colored (like yellow).
I wasn't really looking at any candle that looked like this, but decided it needed some sort of base 1/2 way through so I put it on a torch base, but you can't see the support since it is hidden in the shadows & obscured by the part you can see.
This was a particularly relaxing sketch to do...soothing for some reason.
