Abstraction Emotion - any size (not smaller then 8-11”)
Choose an emotion and create a
emotion is when you are making an art piece out of colors that are reflected on
your mood. In my painting I used a lot of darks, and some really bright colors.
I chose to do it that way because I just felt that having it look all dark
would make me feel a little down, so to make myself happy I added some bright
this project I did have some mishabs but I learned to teach myself how to
reinvent, and make it into something more natural. So at first I was planning
on doing all white and black and so I got a big brush, and I got some water,
but as I dipped my brush in the water then into the paint then onto my paper
the color appeared gray, and watery. At that point I told myself what I had
planned wasn’t going to work. So instead I just continued to undercoat
everything in a damp gray. Then I started taking my colors, and this time I
didn’t use water I dried my brush and started dabbing, and I continued doing
that with every color, so that everything will begin to clash together.
I did enjoy this project even though the process was a little hectic, but at
the end I realized I honestly did really liked my painting.
Abstraction Motion - any size (not smaller then 8-11”)
Choose an motion and create a
motion is when one looks at a drawing, and by looking at it, it sort of looks
like a movement, or it can look as if its actually moving. In this project I
looked up on the internet and found an orange picture that looked as if it was
moving because of the different shades of orange, and I took the photo and I
attempted to do the same thing.
knew that this project was going to be different than the last because we were
dealing with different types of shading, and different textures of lights and
darks. When first beginning the project I had to think to myself if I should add
water or not because I figured if I add water I didn’t want it to start
dripping and such like it did last time, or I said to myself just paint the
paper dry, but I figured if I did that it wouldn’t of had that motion effect.
So I decided that I was going to paint it dry first with a whole bunch of
shades of orange, and then on top of the painting I will coat it with water, so
that it would smear and look sort of like a moving light.
a result I liked this project. It honestly wasn’t one of my favorites, but it
was enjoyable. I personally thought I did ok on this project it didn’t
necessarily look the way I wanted it to but I believe it was worth the
Your choice of medium and size
For my medium size Abstract I did a type of design resulting in
circles, and spirals. The colors I used for this project were all shades of
green. I chose green because I just thought it was a really nice color, that I
wanted to experiment with.
decided to get green paint and on the side I had a little bit of white. I put a
little bit of green on my brush because I didn’t want the green to be too dark,
then I began making swirls with my brush. I eventually began using the white so
that it would have a lighter tone. I then used a little blue and I embedded it
inside the green swirls, so that it would kind of have a nice green and blue
mix. I then added some white outlines, and added some blues.
really enjoyed this project because I felt as though I was free to do whatever
I want, and I thought I did fairly well on this project. At the end I was very
happy with what I accomplished.
Observation Drawing - Close up drawingFor my close up drawing I decided to do a portrait of Bambi
and his mother. I really don’t know what made me think to do a picture of that
but I just wanted to do something different and something that I was more
started my project with the mother because I figured if I get the posistion and
just of the big figure it would be easier to put together the whole picture
with all the little details. I first sketched the drawing as good as I can, and
then I outlined it with a sarker shade. Once I did the mother I began to do the
ears. For some reason the ears were the most difficult part. I think it was
because in the picture it was so complex with the design I just gave up on
perfection and made it look as good as I can. I then worked on the eye. I made
sure it had the perfect distance between the head and the eye. I then began to
work on bambi. The only hardship I had with drawing bambi was when I had to
make him look like as if he was laying down. I believe making his body
positioned on the ground as if he was sort laying against his mother was
I was very happy with my work. I thought I did as best as I could, and I think
my hard work paid off, and I was very happy how my picture turned out.
For my landscape drawing I decided to draw a park that I
found off the internet. In this project, I only used pencil. I used pencil
because I thought it would seem more natural if it came from an actual sketch,
and then proceed with shading.
started with the bottom half of the picture because I figured if I get the
shape of the pathway and the bushes it would create the general shape for the
whole picture. So then I positioned the pathway as if it were going into a city
type thing, as you can see in the picture I made everything narrow so it looks
like an actual parkway, because if you were to look at a parkway it would start
of big and then everything would sort of cave in. After I finished the bottom
half of my paper I began adding things such as bushes and trees and city
a result I’m not necessarily proud of how it turned out but I think it’s a
pretty ok picture. I thought this project was more difficult their others
because drawing a landscape requires a lot of analyzing, and figuring out when
and where to shade. Overall I’m content with the outcome of my project.
