This is a painting called “A caged pie” by Wayne Thiebaud. I was attracted by this work at first glance for its simpleness of composition and variety of color. Like most of his works, Wayne’s ability of portraying color vividly is always a highlight that appealed to the audience. In my enlargement of a part of the original painting, i mainly focus on the depiction of color by mixing oil pastel with different color. It took me a while to experiment but the process is very delightful. In general, i feel very good about my paint and hope you like it!

This is my drawing of the following items. My goal is to portray the object in good shape and color. However, in my opinion, i did not fully achieve my goal. Thought i experiment color by mixing different pastel, the color i had on the painting is kind of different than the original object. The color of the shadow is also a bit off. If i can do this again, i will definitely do more work about the color and try to make the drawing as realistic is i can.
