Charcoal Pumpkins

In this artwork I was trying to make the pumpkins look like they were emerging from the darkness in my paper while keeping in mind Erin Cone's modern organization in her artwork. I accomplished this by using my eraser to draw the pumpkins instead of charcoal first and creating to sections in my drawing. I was surprised that I could create something by using mostly an eraser. My drawing is about contrast of values. My  most difficult challenge was drawing the stem if the second pumpkin. I met that challenge by trying not to think of the stem as a stem and tried to draw it as its own shape. I experienced the shift to my right brain when i was erasing the lit part of my pumpkins rather than sketching out the outline of my pumpkin.My drawing really works in between the bottom and middle pumpkin where the black blends them both together. I learned that there always small changes that you could make in your artwork despite how long you work on it. Michaela had a skull in her artwork and it was shading very smoothly and it looked like it was glowing. If I had a do-over i would put a skull in mine or carve the pumpkin and put a candle in it. My favorite thing in my artwork would be the organization in the background.
