I enjoyed the small object study, again, because I love shading and value. After the critique, I became aware that I picked just about the hardest object in the room and that was a regret…I wonder how it would have went if I had picked something less flat. I am not a big fan of the cross hatching value instead of smooth shading, it looks messy to me, but some of my classmates did some really good things with it. In particular, I felt the nail polish bottle was gorgeous in that it had a soft quality which fit the object being drawn. It was a nice critique.
