Candy Jar- Colored Pencil

I drew this candy jar using Prisma colored pencils. I had a little trouble with drawing every single piece of candy in the jar. It made me think I had to draw every little detail on the candy wrappers (even though I didn't have to). At first coloring with the colored pencils was kind of difficult for me because of the different shades from each and every color I can use, but after a while, I got better at using them. I thought it was really cool how I could blend the colors. Drawing the jar was easy for me but the coloring and the shading was a little difficult. I loved drawing the candy jar with the colored pencils and I would love to use them again.

Bicycle- Graphite Pencil

Here is a drawing of a bicycle that I have done using graphite pencils. I am not the best when it comes to drawing something that is right in front of me, but when I drew this, it looked exactly like the bike. I was really surprised with the outcome. Drawing the bicycle was no problem for me. The only thing that I had trouble with was the shading. Usually the color would be too light and having no highlights. Some things I have learned while drawing the bike is how important it is to add highlights to the drawing and how important it is to keep the drawing going depending on where it is on the paper. All in all, I had a lot of fun drawing the bike.
