Q2 Art: Lotus Shareef-Trudeau

This collection focused mostly on using colored pencils as a medium for my pieces. Colored pencil drawings were fairly new to me, as I had not previously known any of the techniques that we have learned to utilize the pencils. This entire quarter has been a learning experience and a growing opportunity for me. I realized that I like working with the primary colors and blending them to make secondary and tertiary colors, rather than using, for example, a green pencil, because it gives me a lot more room to create different shades and hues for my drawings, as well as play with the light. Though I still could use a lot of practice in with colored pencils, I am very excited to be able to add some new skills to my tool bag.
