Wrapped in Cellophane
Candy Cane - 7 x 10.5" colored pencil on paper

The last big project I have my drawing students do each semester is a colored pencil still life. It is the culmination of the skills they've learned during the semester. From a simple line drawing - to the skills of transferring a picture using a grid - to learning to shade with precision - to composition - to color theory - to finally the freehand drawing of a still life and "painting" with colored pencil. While they were working on their drawings, I worked on this small one (when I wasn't helping them!)
However, I was intrigued by the plastic wrapping as well as the candy. Here's what came of it! Lots of fun... and quite a challenge!
