HOW TO DRAW A LIGHTED CANDLE IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 23  PART 1


TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW A LIGHTED CANDLE IN MS WORD

TYPE:   GRAPHIC DESIGN

This design can be used in many ways. I’m just trying to show how this illustration is created in MS Word. Sometimes when there is a blackout in my area due to power failure, I will light up some candles to lighten the place up. I like to put the candles on metal container covers and tin cans. Hence, this experience gave me the idea for this graphics project. The picture below shows a lighted candle placed in a tin can filled with sand. You can also see that the candlelight is in four subtle shades of yellow. How do you create these tonal values?

        Here are some tips for readers to try drawing this at home. The tools needed to create this drawing are as follows: Oval, Can, Curve line, and Rectangle. By the way, make use of the Fill Effects and More Fill Colors options to add shading and decorative effects to the illustration.
