birds eye view

 This charcoal drawing that i created captures what i love to do.  This is me on a horse named Baxter, this artwork explains me and who i am.  I loved this picture and it meant a lot to me that i could recreate it with charcoal.

 My goals and intentions for this artwork was to show the shadows and lights of the Chinese box and bring it to life.  I accomplished this by using charcoal pencils and white chalk to go over the darks and lights of the box to make them pop.  The thing that surprised me most about drawing this was how easy it was to do for the second time because you are used to the material and what you are drawing with.  The drawing is about shading and highlighting and being able to touch three sides of your paper by cropping out everything you see.  The most difficult challenge was keeping the dark black pitch black.  I met this challenge by going over it many times and not touching it, and hairspray.  My painting really works at the chop sticks because of the tiny detail in the top.  Some things i found was to create cool shadows by putting more than one light on the object from behind and from the side.  Mr. Gadreau taught me everything that i learned in this drawing.  I learned from Georgia how to create a darker shadow with the different type of charcoal pencil.  If i could do it over i would have put a cool background in the back.  I feel i did best by making the background white so that the chinese box pops out.

  My goals and intentions for this project was to create a charcoal drawing that has shadows showing the three demensional object.  I used charcoal and white chalk to bring out highlights and shadows.  My painting is about a pumpkin.  The most difficult challenge was that the dark and the light would blend and create a grey all over.  I met that challenge by going over it multiple times.  My painting really works in the stem.  Some things that i have learned is to do white last very last.  The mentor i can name is Mr. G.  I would have made the pumpkin a little bit bigger.  I feel best about my work with the background.

       My goals and intentions for this artwork to focus on looking at the shadows, highlights, and shapes found within the picture.  I accomplished them by using a light to emphasize the details in the poster and thinking about the shade of darkness i would use.  My drawing is dramatic about the over lapping shadows.  The most difficult challenge i had to face was trying to separate light grey from white, which i met by using an eraser and erasing any place that was pure white.  My drawing really works at the G.  I have learned to not make it streaky.  Erin cone is my mentor.  Mr. Gaudreau is another artist that i learned from.  If i did it over i would have made the letters connect.  I feel best about the overlapping.
