Artist Statement - My favorite part of the artwork is how I outlined the spoons with their same color. I also liked the blending of the colors when two of them met. Even though I outlined the spoons, and I liked it very much, I'd make them darker, or more visible to the audience. Some of the paint also looked "chipped off", and I added too much paint, which caused that and wrinkles on the paper. If I were to create it again, I would edit the parts I didn't really like. Painting the spoons were fun, I wanted to do that utensil as my pattern because I like the shape, and I also like eating! While creating this work, I learned about different types of colors, primay, secondary, related etc. That was the most important part, but also I used shapes to create the pattern. It was also an experience to paint. To create this work, I needed to first think about what I was going to make. After deciding on the pattern of spoons, I sketched out a plan on how to make/format the composition. Then, after being approved, I cut out patterns of three different sizes of spoons: small, medium and large. Then, following my plan, I traced the stencils onto my paper and the outline was finished. To finish it up, I painted the spoons, also based on my plan that I originally sketched. To add something I liked, I finally outlined the spoons. The only thing that surprised me was that the paint was chipping off! I didn't realize that adding too much paint would cause that. Next time, I'll try to re
My favorite part of this sculpture would probaly be the details I put into it. Things like sparkles on the back of the sculpture and the little dots of paint on the scissors. There are many little things that are eye catching. My least favorite part of my work would probaly be the paint on the back side of the cardboard. It looks kind of messy and unorganized. My biggest inspiration for this sculpture would be a skeleton. I know it sounds weird, but the first idea of this sculpture was to have a skeleton hand grabbing on to a human hand (the painted plaster hand would've been the skeleton hand ). Once I got started on this sculpture it turned into something better and I really like it. If I were to change this sculpture and do it again I would change the obvious cracks in the cardboard that shows. To change that I should've painted one more coat. I would've done this because it would look cleaner and more put together. One of the things I learned while creating this was something I never knew before. I had never worked with plaster before this sculpture so when I was working with the plaster I didnt know how messy it was! So I learned a very good lesson, put more newspaper down! There were many things that surprised me while making this sculpture, but I will tell you one, and that was the fact that plaster was still movable after it dries! I didn't know that was possible. What I did to create this artwork: First I made the plaster hand out of cardboard, then covered it with p
My favorite part of this sculpture is the bright yellow jewish star and my least favorite part are the arms. My inspiration for creating this was the holocaust. Im a jew and I thought it would be interesting to show a jewish figure. Back then during the holocaust jewish people had to wear the star of David on their clothes saying they were a jew. I learned that the holocaust should be talked about more and more to prevent a horrible event like it from happening again. I was surprised how the wire came out looking like the skeleton of a body. It helped get my point across even more since jewish people were starving. How I created this sculpture was by using wire and bending it to form the general human body shape. After that was done i took some cardboard and cut it out into the star of David. Since the badges they had to wear were yellow i painted it yellow making it the only bright color there. Then in my neatest hand writting I wrote jewish on the badge.
When I first made this it was going to be a bunny but then out the window of my house later that day I saw a small beaver and so I changed my art completely and made this it was great and is a environmental sculpture and is made of %100 natural things like a rock and pine cone and after many hours of work and lots of glue I made this my little animal.
Hi, my name is Sarah and my favorite part of the work is the shape I chose. I don't know why I love it I just do. My least favorite thing about it is the fact that in the original copy the black background is uneven in color. The inspirational reason was I remember seeing the movie Brave and it reminded me of the movie and how Merida stayed brave I f I were to create this again I would watch how the brush I used for the black because part of my green shape is covered. I learned how to match the colors in my palette to match the ones on the color wheel. I was surprised at how well it turned out. When I was painting it didn't look as good as the finished piece does. what I did was I found /created my shape. Then I drew it out on thick brown paper. After that I cut the shapes out and grabbed a huge piece of white paper. The next class I traced the shape onto the paper. When that was finished I moved onto the paint. I mixed and mixed until I had thew colors that are shown in the painting now. Thank you.
(I am doing autobiography) The artwork Esther has made, is really cool to look at. Esther's favorite part of this artwork is how some of the books she had made a trail, it makes your eyes follow the books. Also she really favors is how the black makes the book pop out. What Esther Park doesn't really favor most is some books' sides are a little wiggly and also how she made the black lines on the book too thick. Esther's inspiration is how she loves reading books and how I love the books that are colorful and not dull. If Esther Park had a time machine she would go back and change how she made the lines on the book way too thick,why she says that is because on little small books the books just looks so weird that a little book has huge and thick lines in the middle.Also, Esther would go back time to make sure she did her work more seriously, why she says that is to do my work faster. What Esther learned while making this artwork is mixing colors is not that easy and how she knows that visual will give you a big challenge. This artwork really did surprised Esther because she didn't know that she could do this type of artwork. Esther always knew she wasn't good with painting and working out things like these so well. She wouldn't forget how to create this artwork and here are the things she did to make this artwork. First, she picked an idea what she likes or loved to do and researched about it. Second, she drew the plan on her sketchbook to make sure she enlarge well, and she
"What's fun?" I sat there and asked myself. Then I realized, "Nothing is more fun that food!" when I look at a artwork, I'm not really going to want a sense of sadness to come across my brain. Art is supposed to be peaceful, not depressing. But then, after I had a category, I had to think of something. What food will trigger a memory for me. Then it dawned on me. After a long day in Colorado of looking at model homes for my Aunt Sharon, we decided that the little ones had enough, and headed home. When we almost made it home, when my cousin, Lorcan saw the golden arches of McDonalds. We caved in and ordered food for the whole gang . . . and the soda (I didn't drink anything all day.) I like how towards the middle of the artwork, there are four cups, all the same size, making a pattern of the colors green, yellow, green, yellow. I dislike how for some of the tertiary colors, I didn't leave enough space to use them in, so next time, I would make some of the cups overlap even more so that the tertiary colors can show even more. Some concepts that I learned while creating this piece of work is that it hurts to use little tiny amounts of paint at one time. I say this because using a little bit of paint will not make the stroke come out as solid color. It will come out with color in all different places, kind of like tie-dye. Then you have to go over it with paint again, and once you go over it, it will not be a straight line like it would of been with a larger amount of
I was thinking of something to paint and I was sketching and I saw a paint brush and it struck me I would paint a paint brush and after a lot of hard work I made this! My favorite part of the art is that I used the paint brushes to create a path for the viewer to follow. I wish I could have added more paint brushes to show more of the colors in the art. I really enjoyed making the art work and how good it came out!
I really enjoyed working on this piece. My favorite part of this artwork is that it relates to me as a musician. My least favorite part of this piece was the black paint in the background because I made the lines too wavy. My inspiration was music so I created a hard edge painting with many musical notes. If I had a chance to change this piece I would paint the black background more steady and straight so it would be filled in more and the black would stand out to make more of a statement. I used many concepts like movement, balance, and depth. I also used primary and secondary colors in this artwork. I was very proud of the outcome with this hard edge painting because it was my very first motif and the first time I mixed colors to make other colors. I created this artwork by first deciding on my theme, musical notes, then I made stencils shaped like musical notes. I mixed the paint to make more dramatic tones. I then painted the stencils in many different colors and shapes. Last, I painted the background in black to add more depth. I would definitely paint another painting with these concepts. I would just spend more time on my background....
this painting started out as a purse. i had picked my shape to be a purse, because i love shopping, but i wanted to search for a depoer meaning. at the last minute i decided to change my shape to a cursive i. i decided to make an i when i saw somene elses shape that looked like an e. the meaning behind choosing the shape of a cursive i was showing who i am with my old school being catholic (thats where the cursive came from) and i being my first innitial, i thought it suited me.
My favorite part of my artwork was how vibrant and bright I made my colors. It made the artwork look a lot more nice. In fact, I had to repaint two of the colors that I used because it didn't look good! What I don't like about the artwork is how my green came out. It didn't look vibrant and colorful. This was one of the colors I had to repaint. My inspiration for this artwork was that I love to use actual paint-splatters for my art. Instead of paint-splatting, I actually had to paint paint-splatters!I would definitely change the color of my green because it looks really bad. If I had to create this painting again, I'd try my best to make a great shade of green. Some of the concepts I learned while creating this artwork was to create templates for the designs of the painting. It was easier to do instead of just actually drawing each paint-splatter out. What surprised me was how well it turned out! What I did to create this artwork was to use templates to make the paint-splatters; plus I used and mixed paint to create the colors. I really loved creating this painting.
i really like this potrait i did, i feel like it expresses me in so many ways. i really like how when i went back in photoshop the brightness i added to give it alittle pop, however im not to happy with the mix of the yellow and the blue. my biggest inspiration for this potrait was words, because when i first was starting this i knew i wanted and signs but not very many people when i was in progress with this knew what it was, which was ok, because i knew what it was. i would change how much blue i used, i just think its to much. i wish i added more red.i learned this and sign can also be used in france. it suprised me because when it was in pencil it seemed like so many and signs but when i finished it...... it didnt seem like so many. i did a couple thumbnails to create this first, then i enlarged it then painted it, thanks for reading!!!!
I love to draw freely so you have a fresh and relaxed feeling when you look at the image. In this drawing I incorporated a swirl like figure and some stripes going in different directions. I tried to create value and balance the image out.
This is my hard edge painting. I incorporated all different sizes, big, medium and small. What you see in the picture can be interpreted in many different ways. When i painted this i was going for a human outline kind of shape. Making and planning the color scheme was the most difficult part for me considering sometimes it made me need to rotate items, add more people or take away a person or two. To start off the lesson my teacher mrs. Degreggory showed us previous ones. Not only was it fun but it made me feel creative since what ever we picked to do couldn't have all ready been done or look similar to one that has been done. to me the figure symbolizes that everyone one is different and unique in their own way.
Cornicopia of Arcons was inspired by I one of my favorite animals; the squirrel and squirrels eat acorns and nuts. In this artwork I liked the bright energetic colors and the pattern of the acorns. I didn't like were at the bottom where the purples got mixed together. While creating this artwork I learned about the color wheel, primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. What I did to create this artworkwas make a smaller thumbnail, enlarge it, place the shapes and then paint! When enlarging from my thumbnail, I had to multilpy the shapes to make them 4 times bigger. If I were to create this again I would pay more attention to my mixing and I would put the shapes in a different pattern. Upon competion, I was suprised at how much the colors popped on the black background.
My favorite part of this artwork is the arrangement of the towers. I also love how my painting has to do with Paris, because that's my favorite city. My least favorite part of the artwork is how there's not much red. My inspiration for this artwork is Paris. I've always wanted to go there and see the Eiffel Tower. If I could create the artwork again, I would try to change as little as possible. The one thing I would change is the arrangement of the colors. I think there should be more red and less yellow. I learned motif art and mixing colors. I created this artwork by mixing primary colors to get new colors, and I used stencils to draw the Eiffel towers. I'm surprised at how well the painting turned out.
This painting was inspired by women at a starting line all squeezed together. My favorite part of the painting is how good all the colors look together they just pop! If i were to change anything about this painting I would change the purple. The purple looks dark and light at the same time and I wish I could have gone back and brush it out evenly. Some concepts I learned was the different strokes you could make with the paintbrush. One thing that surprised me in this painting was how good the green turned out. At first it looked like mashed up peas but on the paper it turned out great! To create this painting we had to do multiple steps to meet the criteria. We first had to think of a symbol to paint, find the definition, make a thumbnail, color it in to see what the colors looked like, make measurements of a big, medium, and small, multiply them by three to get the big symbol that will appear in the painting, make a stencil of the big, medium, and small , trace it on the painting paper get the paint, mix the paint and finally paint!!!!
In this artwork I think the depth and background are done well. However, I do not like the uneven shading. I learned about depth and the importance of the element line. These concepts are demonstrated in shape size and the shapes themselves. If I were to do something like this again, as I said before, I would try to fix the shading to create a better image. In the middle of my artwork there is a black circle. What surprised me was how much it stood out to create more depth. When creating a this thumbnail I drew a small version first and then enlarged to the bigger version. I was inspired to draw this when I was watching a weather report about a tornado warning in Oklahoma.
My favorite part is the incomplete circle on the bottom right corner. My least favorite part is the hatching between my curvilinear lines. My inspiration was my kitchen light. I would change the hatching between the curvilinear lines because it looks 3-D and the big circles are 2-D and it doesn't flow. I learned the similarities and differences between rectilinear and curvilinear. What surprised me the most was the part that I spent the least amount of energy on looked the most spectacular. What I did first was sketch the squiggly lines across the whole paper, then I drew the open lanterns. After that I drew the tiny circles. Then I decided that I wanted big circles with pretty designs in them so I erased the spots where I drew the big circles. I wanted to make them almost the exact opposite of each other. Then after I did that I loved the circles and so I drew the smaller circles. I wasn't done yet so I looked back to the criteria and saw I needed rectilinear lines. Bummer so I drew the hatching in between. It was perfect my dad said I should make it darker and try erase all of my big erase marks. So I went up-stairs and took out the darkest pencil I had and I went over everything then I took my kneaded eraser and made it look like it does. Hope you like it!
I like how I created an illusion in my artwork from the arrows because the viewer would probably find that the most interesting. The arrows are my main focus of the artwork. There is actually nothing I don't like about this artwork. I would probably change the curvilinear parts of my artwork because it seemed like there wasn't much curvilinear shapes and patterns besides the circles. I would continue the arrows because the arrows are the piece of my artwork that really makes my artwork stands out. The truth is, I don’t know how I thought of the arrow illusion idea. The idea just popped into my head and stayed there. While I was drawing my artwork, sometimes I would think that the viewer would be confused where all the arrows are pointing. They are all pointing at each other, so I guess that is why it would be an illusion. Some of the concepts I learned was creating a thumbnail sketch before creating your actual artwork. I also learned how to shade objects while creating this artwork. I was actually surprised how my artwork turned out. It came out a lot better than I thought. I had to cut some parts of my original artwork in order to fit it onto the paper. I had to use a lot of lines and value to create this artwork.
