The assignment was to do a study in grey scale.
I measured this anniversary clock with a simple vernier calliper and drafted it 1:1 on grey card.
Then I had to imagine where the shadows would fall, as there were no shadows to observe. The clock itself, including its mechanism, is shiny brass. The clock has no shadows, only reflections of its surroundings.
