Pastel Still Life- Soda Love
The composition of this piece was a cool color scheme, which was chosen based on the colors of the cans as well as the colors of the bottle. Thumbnail sketches were used to help decide what point of view to use, as well as the position of the cans and bottle. Thumbnail sketches are small sketches that help determine what kind of viewpoint and angle you want to use for the artwork. The viewfinder helped decide on the composition by showing what the cans and bottle were like from a certain angle. The cans and bottle were made three-dimensional using shading and perspectibe, which make them appear as seperate objects that had space between them. The lightsource was created by having a lighter value in the background and having the value become darker as the space became more distant from the lightsource.
