Notice that you cannot see the tops of the objects. You can see them from the side only. You can also see just a small portion of the tabletop. Notice the height of the back of the table in relation to the objects on the table. Here are two different eye levels. In the first image (a), you are looking down on the objects. Consider which portions of the objects you can actually see. How much of the table can you see? In the second image (b), your eye level is lower. You cannot see the tops of the objects, and the table is obscuring the bottom of the objects.

Edges of objects are not sharply defined, as they can be when using artificial light. This lighting creates more subtle and gradual changes in tones on objects. It can therefore be more difficult to render an object with this type of light. As you gain more experience in your drawing, we encourage you to use natural light. An important point to remember is to light your objects by a window where there is no influence from direct sunlight. This will enable you to work for a longer period, as you will not have to deal with disturbing bands of sunlight or shadows across your paper.
