This is a pastel landscape drawing created on a blush pink paper. This was a fun assignment because this was the first time I had really drawn a landscape. I had to choose an image I had taken from the past, and I chose the lake because I thought the reflection in the water was beautiful. This was a challenging piece because there is so much contrast in the image, but the colors ended up bouncing off each other really well.

This drawing placed as a finalist in the SCAD 2019 Foundation Studies Portfolio Competition.

Some of the techniques I used, but are not limited to are...

• Color

• Blending

• Depth

• Contrast

• Drawing
