I used watercolor and pen and ink to create my piece. I made a frame out of black construction paper. I was going to make my project wider because I was going to draw the bridge next to it, but I thought that was going to be hard so I made it a square. I printed out a detailed photo of the Eiffel Tower out and cut it out from the background so that I could trace it. I drew the rest of the lines with the help of the photo.
I thought that the piece was too dark and that there was not enough value, so I painted the clouds over it with a circular sponge and re drew the Eiffel Tower lines on top when it dried. The green bushes were last. I used a sharpie.

I developed my ideas for the project by coming up with ten ideas for the project and choosing the one that I liked the best. The point of view impacted the overall feel of the drawing by making the turtle look larger than the things in the background and more important and independent. I started off making the turtle and the log really light but then I added more values. I challenged myself to make a good piece by making the log look 3D and making the turtle and background look better.

Why is value important and how do you feel you achieved the look of the bag through volume? Discuss how you used the material and your successes and challenges with this project.
I think that I achieved the look of the bag through volume by making value through shadows and by the shape of the bag. I think that it was challenging because I discovered that my charcoal skills are nonexistent during this project.
