In comparison to the bike drawing, the candy jar was much more fun to me. It was more esthetically pleasing. The colors brought life to the drawing rather than it being grey and shaded. More details were able to be added to the bike drawing, but it was a little dead looking. The candy jar felt more complete.

The candy jar drawing was a great example of how to make something look like it is inside of an object rather than just on top of it or in front of it. It taught me how to differentiate from different shades of actual color rather than just the lights and darks of a Graphite pencil. The color made reflections easier to distinguish between items outside the jar and inside the jar. It also showed me that not everything is just one color, but that a lot of colors can make colors look deeper and darker than just a single color could do with just pressure.
