In this project we took photos containing a lot of contrast and attempted to replicate them using charcoal. I found this difficult because I had never before tried to replicate an image with so much attention to value. I found that drawing the objects in the photo was much easier than going back in and making them look realistic using charcoal, white pencils, erasers, and other constraints. If I were to continue working on this piece, I would add more weight to my lines, make the background value more consistent, and make the table look more realistic. Overall, I enjoyed this project and I think it gave me a good sense of shading and light sources in drawings.
