pretend it's yours

my goals and intentions were to create a drawling that showed shadows and lead you into it. I accomplished that by looking at the still life and drawling what I saw. All of the shadows and how the chopsticks lead you toward the take out box making it more visually pleasing.What surprised me the most was how complex such a little box can be, there were so many details that I thought wouldn't have to be taken into account which clearly did. My drawling is about different shades and how something may seem so dull but the way you chose to interpret that is always incredible and will always be interesting.
The most difficult challenge I had while drawling was the values. Making the values all different colors while still trying to distinguish shapes was a complex challenge. I meet this by having 6 different tones so that you could tell where and what place everything is in and what is what. I used the right brain thinking while looking at the still life and drawling what i saw from my point of view.I think my drawling really works in the shadows, you can really tell where the light was coming from and how that affects the intricacy of it. 
some things I have learned from an other artist in the class would be blending with an eraser from Josie and from Kaylin with shadows. all in all they really helped my work though it and made it better.
