Different utensils, different drawings!

In the bike drawing I used graphite pencils. I really enjoyed how the value scale worked with the pencils. You could really tell the dark spots of the bike from the light spots. I could also erase my mistakes! With the candy jar drawing, I used colored pencils. This drawing really pops out and looks realistic. I enjoyed using colored pencils and being able to make the glass actually look like glass. I also enjoyed coloring the candy in. I can't really say which utensil I like using more because I like them both! If I had to chose with drawing I like more It would have to be my candy jar because of all the vivid colors. I love what i have accomplished so far and I'm excited to see what comes next! Stay tuned!

Candy Jar Drawing

The candy jar would have to be the most difficult object to draw so far. Not only is a jar hard to draw but so was the candy inside the jar. For this drawing I used colored pencils. I first started off drawing the jar. After that, I started to draw the candy inside the jar. This was very difficult because the candy was all on top of each other. Also the emptiness of the top of the jar had to be shown. I started coloring the lid of the jar using the value scale. Where the light hit the jar I used lighter colors. I made shadows under the candy on the outside of the jar so they didn't look like they were floating. I really enjoy this art piece and I'm very proud of it 

Bicycle drawing

When I first discovered I was going to be drawing a bike I knew it wouldnt be an easy task. I learned a lot while drawing, including value scale and proportion. By using the value scale, I was able to really bring out the detail of the bike. I was able to make the metal actually look like metal. I used proportion by focusing in on one part of the bike and using as much space on the paper as I could. What surprised me the most about my drawing was how shading really brought the bike to life. Shading took a lot of time and patience. It was a painful process but in the end Im glad I took my time. Im proud of how my first piece of art came out.
