The title is "Peppers" because it is a picture of five peppers sitting on a cloth. The process I used was pointillism. I created the illusion of space by overlapping, placement, intensity, and value. Overlapping is used with the peppers. The yellow and orange peppers overlap the red pepper. The yellow pepper overlaps the left green pepper and the orange pepper overlaps the right green pepper. All the peppers overlap the cloth. I used placement by placing the red pepper higher than the rest of the peppers. The values are used by many mid tones, cast shadows, and highlights. In pointillism the eye merges all of the colors. The artwork is designed and put together by balance, variety, emphasis, and unity. The balance is informal because its asymmetrical. The emphasis is the yellow pepper because it is brighter, there's more contrast, and it's near the center. This piece is unified by the pointillism techniques and the visual texture. My interpretation goal was to create the illusion of space. I was successful by creating the illusion of real peppers sitting on a real cloth by using overlapping, placement, intensity, and variety using techniques of pointillism.

The title of my piece is "The Dotted Peppers", I titled it this because it is made up of small dots close together. The mediums I used are markers and a matt board. The process used to create the full composition is pointillism. The composition is of three different colored peppers, lying against each other with a neutral fabric lying underneath and behind the peppers. Organic shapes of the bell pepper, the overlapping of peppers creates illusions of space. Value in colors, shadow, and highlights show the illusion of space. The illusion of space is also created by the overlapping of the peppers as well as through the placement of each pepper. I used each peppers complementary color as well as the neutral fabric value tones to create the shadows and the visual realism of each of the bell peppers as they are placed on a draped cloth these values creates an illusion of space. Tactile texture is smooth the visual textures are rough because of dark shadows, curves in the neutral fabric, and the curves of the stems. Balance is informal and asymmetrical, due to the settle differences side-to-side. Composition is unified through colors and shapes and drawing technique of pointillism. My personal judgment is that I do like my piece and that I was successful in using the elements and principles to create a unified composition in the pointillism marker technique creating the illusion of real 3-D peppers sitting on a cloth.

I used a mat board, pencil, and markers to make the artwork. First, I looked at the still-life peppers and sketched them on my board. Next, I used pointillism to create the different values of the peppers. I also use the illusion of space by overlapping the peppers and using different values to create highlights, mid tones, and shadows. I also used the illusion of space by placing farther away peppers higher up in the picture plane. I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Red, yellow, and green were my main colors and then I used their compliments to create value. This piece has an informal balance because of the different values and textures on the peppers and in the background. This artwork has visual textures of what......because even though you can't feel the texture you can see it. The artwork is simple, so I wanted to keep the title short, simple, and something that explains what it is. I tried to make my peppers look as real as they could because I was drawing the peppers from a still-life. I like my artwork because I feel like it looks close to real life. The illusion is successful because the peppers look real. Pointillism affected the artwork by creating value, texture, and unity.
