Pastel drawing of Director's Chair

I created this drawing in the year 2ooo to use as an example for an assignment I gave for a class called Drawing for Graphics at Meramec Community College located in St. Louis County, MO. Below is the assignment with examples of my step by step process.

Fill in the negative area around object and shadow with a black marker. Create a full color illustration concentrating on the negative shapes. Be creative with the use of color. It is not necessary to copy the color of the photograph.

I created a color marker sketch instead of a  black marker sketch. My pastel drawing is 21″ wide x 17″ high.
