Cans, Candy, Lollipops
The cand project was an interesting project because we were using oil pastels, which sometimes are to big for detail, but perfect for this project. We went and got a piece of candy and was told to draw including the wrapper. Which in most cases was clear, coming to the problem. How do you draw something thats clear on a white sheet of paper. For the can project we had the opportunity to draw a soda can with detail or no detail. In the case of the can we used oil pastels to draw the can trying to bring out the colors and make the can pop off the page. With the can the hard part was making it look realistic, while trying to make it pop off the page because of the need to exaggerate colors. Last was the lollipop which i thought was the hardest because they are pretty boring. Its a white stick, with a white wrapper, with a few words. Trying to find detail was hard because all you had to draw was the creases and folds outlining the wrap around the lollipop.
