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.
