Title of Art Piece: The Colors of Light
Student/Artist’s Name: Cody Beach
School: Thunder Mountain High School
Artist Statement: We did other still-lifes earlier in pencil and charcoal. Then we switched to black paper and used white chalk to draw, learning to save the black of the paper for shadows, instead of drawing it in, like we did with charcoal. The we studied the color wheel and chose a palette for our subject. Most people drew flowers, but I chose fruit. We turned off the lights and lit our subject with lamps, like before, but this time we used color pastels.
