Taking on New Challenges

In this piece, Sally took on the challenge of darkening her shadows with rich blues, purples, and greens in colored pencil. It is often difficult to work through the feeling that you're going to ruin your work when you're trying something new. I still get that feeling but know from experience that you have to trust yourself and everything will be ok. Easier said than done, I know!

Look what a difference it made! The pots look rounder, the boots more 3-dimensional and the background to the right is pushed back.

Good job, Sally!
