I have finished three drawings of roses, and they were each difficult. I have gotten my paints out in months. This is good for me to exercise my art skills. I love detail, and there was a time when I was told not to finish the painting. I had to let it go when it wasn’t completed. That was hard.
Lamps are hard to draw, and so are roses. You want to get a likeness. With simple lines you can get a likeness. Then there is shadow on the roses. It can be in grays, or the red can be there with shadows drawn in with pencil. For now I am doing water-color drawings, and they may look easy, but I spend time trying to conquer the details. I do.
