the pot and bowling ball

My goal is draw what I saw. The thing that most surprise me is that how the color combine themselves reflecting on the pot, the color is really hard to find and resolve with each other by drawing. My drawing is about reflecting. The most difficult challenge I have to face is the shadow for the bowling balls and how to show that green ball is behind the orange one and not flying in the air. If I can redo, I will have to change the carpet under the pot and the balls, it doesn't look like a carpet in my drawing, I will have to make the strips thinner and thinner, so it will shown to be under. I think the best I did are the shadows on the two bowling balls.

Artists Pages

My goal is to imitate Janet Fish by using oil pastils. Janet Fish is a realistic artist, so it's hard to imitate. The thing that most surprise me is that she can draw it so similar, so realistic by using oil pants. The most difficult thing I have to face is that, I have to draw such a small part from a very big picture, and the rate is hard to find. If you draw bigger or the wrong part, the whole picture is done, because there are no place to change to move. If I can redo I will measure the size more carefully. I think the best I did is that I mixed the right color from the colors that I had.

Shadow under the light

This is an ancient Chinese hair clasp, it has a little bit complex structure and our theme is into the night so I put it under the light and the shadow is very pretty.

I use the same type of drawing as the pumpkin drawing. I was surprised that the shadow can be this big. This drawing is mostly about shadows and lights. The most challenge is the light on the Chinese food box. I just try my best to draw what I see. I learn that it's better if you do one drawings at one time, don't draw separately. Because I can't find the right angle for the second time. If I had a do-over I would try to find a more interesting shadow and also I would draw the outline first so I don't have to worried about can't find the right angle next time. I like my shadow best in the drawing.

Ivy's Pumpkin Drawing

The goal is to do the shadow and light of the pumpkin. We used charcoals and eraser to accomplished this. The most difficult challenge is to draw the shadows. We used tissue and made the whole drawing dark, then used charcoals to draw the outline, finally get the shadow in side, and also have to be careful that there might be light and dark shadow. I can use the composition to separate the shadows on the back.

Chinese decorate

I am just trying to draw the shadows and the decorate. I use 2B F HB draw this. The most surprised me the most is that the frog on the top is very had to draw. This is about shadows and composition. The most difficult challenge is that the details on the decorate. I watch them very carefully and draw them bigger so it's easier to draw details. I learned that there can be a lighter shadow on the outside of the big dark shadow.
