Pastel Still Life
For my composition I chose objects that were related to each other. Then, I arranged them in different setups until I found one that I liked. Last, I chose to use a cool color scheme. A thumbnail sketch is a sketch of a particular area of your setup that you will draw. The view finder helped me choose which part of the setup I would draw.To make my objects seem 3D I used value. I started with light colors and used darker colors to create folds and rounded edges. To create a light source I used cast shadows. I made the background area where the light was coming from brighter than the other side of the drawing. I also highlighted areas that shined where the light hit the objects.
