Creating this still life has been my favorite, yet also most challenging, assignment in art so far this year.  I took great detail in accurately expressing the shapes and shading of each object, and never sacrificed quality for quickness. Some of the subjects were easy to recreate, such as the bowl, box, and bottle, whereas some had more complex figures and required a greater amount of effort and re-dos in order to create a pleasing final product, like the candelabra and coffee grinder.  The most difficult challenge, however, was unquestionably the task of drawing the folds and shadows in the background/white sheet.  I spent much time working towards these results, had fun along the way, and am proud of the outcome.
