For the final project I had to create a series of 3 drawings. The choices of style of drawing and drawing mediums were left up to me. Since I enjoyed working with Conte crayon on dark paper previously I knew what I would use for this project. Coming up with something interesting to draw was the difficult part. In class we worked on drawing reflective surfaces and I thought that was challenging. A friend gave me this wonderful glass container. So I decided to create 3 still life's using the container and other objects. I started by creating a table on top of my bed covered with a white sheet. To eliminate distractions in the background I draped a portion of the sheet from the ceiling. The container needed something inside it, so I filled it with various things to create an pleasing composition. (Although looking at them now I might have not centered the container but instead placed it off center to either side) I pointed a bright lamp directly at the objects to create some interesting shadows and reflections.
