Create > Shiny Silverware (or anything) Still Life
Goal: Accurately rendered reflective surfaces.
Studio: Set up a still life of shiny metal silverware. Keep in mind the rule of thirds for a good composition. Drawing reflective surfaces is easy if you see and draw the lights and darks. The shadows and highlights are clearly defined and warp to the shape of the metal object. You may want to photograph your still life and turn the image upside down to draw it.
