Colored Pencil Crunched Cans

Medium: colored pencils

Description: To work with value (as always 🙂 ), color, and composition, I crunched up some  soda cans and created this still life. Really, to make this more than a sketch, I should’ve enlarged the cans and added in more shadows and some sort of background, even if only values in black and white. Next time…

    Good ideas of crushing soda cans as drawing subjects. I should do that sometime myself. Thank you for sharing!
