The article discusses the reflection in sketching. Reflection is pleasantly interrupted by the direct light from windows or lamps, and can be easily understood if it is recognized as part of a bi-symmetric solid with its lower half submerged. It comes out exactly as the lower half of a solid figure would appear. Moreover, reflections in interior sketches require the artist to know how to place the fragment of a reflection on floors, tables and other surfaces.
