          While doing the drawing of the monopoly game board I had to think about many things such as perspective, the vanishing points, value and the horizon line. My completed drawing was successful because I included shadows with my color pencils. I also had to blend in the color pencils because it made it look more realistic. But before I even started using color pencil, I had to do washes of watercolor over my drawing. After I did this, I overlapped the watercolor with color pencil. The only thing that didn't work with this project was the orange in the background. I should've gradually make the orange light. If I could do my project over again, this is what I would change. I learned that you need to plan very well before you even start watercolors or color pencils.  The most difficult part of the project was adding in the highlights on the game board.
