In the second picture, I feel that I grew so much as far as painting was concerned. In the Multi Media project, I used watercolor, acrylic paint, gel pens, and puzzle pieces. It was fun to think of ways to incooperate different medians into a project. I chose the theme Fears and Fantasies, and began with an idea of a split world; half good, half bad. I played around with this, and got an idea of showing the good, the evil, and the lonely in between. The creepy baloons are just to add eeriness to the painting. I used contrast in this project to distinctly show the difference of good and evil with dark and light colors. This was a key part to my project.I used varaity by using the different medians, and by using the watercolor as background, and acrylic for the focal points, much more emphasis was on the chair, trees, and path, which is what I hoped for.
4.)In the first picture, I worked with a gel pen to draw and shade in a wine bottle. I learned alot about contrast, shading, hatching, and crosshatching in this mini project. I feel like I not only succeeded with this project, but I learned alot which then carried over to my next project with pencil shading, since I picked up new techniques. I feel like I had been given enough instruction for this piece, and I could not ask for any other help.
In the second picture, I worked with colored pencils to draw a picture of a dum dum. This may not have been the best project I've done, but I improved tremendously with drawing, and working with colored pencils. I used to be terrible with colored pencils, but I learned techniques for shading, contrast, and adding value to the lollipop to make it look more lifelike, and to really pop and seem 3D. This really helped me improve so when I did my Up Close and Personal project, I really succeeded and new my way around with a box of colored pencils. I learned how much to shade, and where highlights were necessary to make a drawing better.
5.) My favorite median to work with was acrylic paint. I've always loved paint because I could mix and create any color I could dream of. It was also less precise than drawing, and mistakes I made weren't as obvious. I loved mixing and blending colors, even though my Sticky Situation project didn't turn out the way I hoped. I used paint again for my Mixed Media project because of how much fun it was to work with. I felt that new oppertunities opened up with paint, because mistakes could be painted over again without too much of a problem.
