This is a picture of my sister at the beach taken by my friend. I used pastels on a pastel board for this work. My sister, Emily, is the clear center of interest. There is much contrast in this picture because of the various darks and lights used in each object. Also, there is contrast between the dark blue umbrellas and my sister's fair skin. There is movement in this picture in the hair, shorts, and waves. They look as if there is action in the pictures. There are converging lines that point towards my sister, leading the viewer's eye towards her.
