MY goals in this were to create a life looking pictutre of pencils. I accompished them by using pastels to make my colors pop. My painting is about shadows and different colors. The most difficult thing i had to face was doing my shadows. I met the challenge by mixing different colors to create a good looking shadow to reflect the light. I think my painting really works on the pencils with thte different shades of color. I have learned to mix colors to make a color that i want. Taylor really helped me with the shadows and to grasp the idea of them. If i had a do over i think i would mix the shadows wiht different colors. The thing i feel best about is my colors in the pencils, i feel like they really pop and make the drawing look good.

My goals and intentions in this artwork was to show a chinese take out box and make it look realistic using charcoal. I accomplished these goals by taking my time and creating shadows with the charcoal. What suprised me most was that if you make the right lines and shade everything right, it really comes together and looks cool. My drawing is about shadows and dark and light. I tried to portray the light coming on the right side by making that side lighter and the other side darker because that is where the shadows where. The most difficult challange i had to face was making sure it all came together and looked like the actual box. I met my challenege by getting help from mr. gadreau and he helped me make my lines. I think my drawing really works in the lower right corner with the light. Some things i have learnded is that i dont need to make dark lines i can just use my eraser and use that to decifer the light and dark. I learned from taylor that i should use the white chalk in places i wanted it to be lighter because it makes it look better then just using an eraser.

My goals and intentions of this pumpkin were to show the shadows and shades of the pumpkin in real life. I accomplished them by making the areas with dark shadows, very dark. I used charcoal to make them as black as I could. I also accomplished it because i made the areas with light whiter with white chalk. My painting is about shadows and color shades. My picture had a lot of different shadows which made it fun to draw. I think the most difficult thing i had to face was making sure the stem was not too big or too small. I think by the end I did it a good size but i struggled in the begginig with its size. I think my painting really works at the start of the stem. I love right behind the stem when the white comes into the black and starts to form the stem. things i learned that i can bring into my next painting is that I should trace or outline it first before you do it. In the project I would lightly outline the stem or somehwere that i needed and then i would start to charcoal and i think that really helped. Honestly the only mentor I used was Mr. Gadraeu. He really helped me with my shadows and I wouldnt have been able to pull this off without him. I learned from georgia that i needed to make some sides darker. If i had a do over i honestly wouldnt change anything. The thing i feel best about is the shadows and stem. It is by far my favorite part of the project.
