The Tools of the Shadowcaster

Lead holder, small triangle, the all-important ruling pen, light, medium, dark and very dark shadow washes, a warm reflected light wash, and a variety of brushes.
 
The shadowcaster often works upside down depending on which way the shadow is graded. In this case the shadow is darkest at the top of the building.

 
Even the masters make mistakes. Spot the mistake the shadowcaster has made in this detail and win a small dish of reflected light, or perhaps a vial of backshadow...
