I took risks.
I wanted to draw my grandpa and I in the artwork. Drawing people has never been my strongest place in art, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to put it in my artwork. I decided that since I really wanted to represent my grandpa, I would try it. I asked Ms. Schumann for help and she helped realize that they were just shapes. I practiced on a separate piece of paper and after a few tries it worked out well. I was successful by using different media because the soft pastels were too thick. I used a different type of pencil that I have used before. I also have never drawn a tree with soft pastels before, but with the help of Ms. Schumann she helped me accomplish the national tree of El Salvador. I then finally finished my artwork that I am very proud of.
