EDM #2 Lamp

Challenge #2 Lamp - I am pretty new to EDM so I am going back over the list when I need inspiration. I have Very boring lamps in my home. This one floor lamp has a very pretty cut glass shade a' la Tiffany style. Of course capturing the light and swirl of glass is tough but I thought I would give it a try. I did try the birthday candle trick to show the twist of the wooden base - that worked out well. Glass will probably always be a challenge for me. Pencil sketch followed by Water Color in my NON - Watercolor moleskine note book - I have to stop using this for watercolor, it is not happy and the yellow pages throw off my colors AND it is hard to photograph.
