Drawing class homework, chalk on black

At last week's art class, we painted a half sheet of drawing paper with black india ink to take home. The assignment was to draw a night time scene, by subdued light, drawing only the highlights, using white chalk.
I did a preliminary sketch in my sketch book, then made this drawing, which I am calling "Kettle by Candlelight". Rather fun!
