The first medium that we used was oil pastels. We had to draw a soda can using 4 different colors to create values. I really liked using oil pastels because they really popped against the black paper that we drew the cans on. I struggled with them because I had a hard time understanding how to blend the colors by just adding lines. I did like drawing with them however, because they make everything look so bright!
The next medium that we used were chalk pastels. We created a candy in a transparent wrapper. I really had fun with this mini project, they were my favorite of the three mediums and I would really enjoy working with chalk pastels more. Even though I liked them so much, I struggled with making the candy and the folds in the transparent plastic to look real
The final medium that we worked with were colored pencils. I was the most comfortable with colored pencils out of the other two mediums. I ended up using colored pencils on my final project because I liked it the best. In class we had to draw a lollipop showing all of the lights and the darks. I had a hard time capturing all of the lines and folds in the wrapper, but other than that I really liked using colored pencils.
Overall I really liked all of the different mediums that we worked with, and I enjoyed drawing with all of them!
