My drawing has improved significantly since the start of the semester. I used to consider myself as not being able to "draw" at all, but the practice I've done in my observational sketchbook has shown me than I can make successful drawings with the techniques I have learned. This semester I learned how to shade and blend effectively to create shadows and dimension and use erasing to show light. I have also improved on using detail and contrast to make more successful sketches.
I considered this to be my most successful sketch because the apple appears to be three-dimensional by use of shading and I believe I achieved to effect of light reflecting off of the apple.
