I came up with the idea for this drawing on my own. For this project I learned how to incorporate perspective in to my drawings and shading with pencils. I have always thought castles were a cool subject and drawing one was fun. Using colored pencils with regular pencils was new for me and difficult. I used regular pencils which I usually use as a meduim. I didn't need any help from anyone for this project besides mrs. Rossi. I messed up a little on the shading of the castle walls but mrs. Rossi helped me with it and I then shaded the walls much darker. I tried out how I would draw the bricks on a separate piece of paper before I started my main drawing. I used the internet for ideas on walls.

I got the idea for my bag because I bring my lunch everyday and I also saw a plastic bag drawing, that I thought was really good. I drew some of the objects in my lunch bag. I think I have gotten better with using colored pencils and especially the white color. This art shows my lunch and how I bring it to school everyday. Initially I was worried about the transparency of the bag but I think it now turned out alright. I picked black paper for my background which I don't usually do. Another student drew a plastic bag a long time ago I don't know who it was but that art really inspired me to draw this. When I drew the tile background the color turned out wrong and I have tried to make it work out. Before I started my final I drew a few bags on small extra black paper and then I got it down, before I drew the final. I also used a few images from the internet for examples.

This Is a red Jolly Rancher I drew. I used red, orange, yellow and a little of purple colored pastels for the candy. For the wrapper I used white and yellow. I used black paper for the background so the pastels would show up really well. I think I like to use pastels more than the prisma pencils, they blend very well and I thought they were fun.
