''Bambi'' is a 5 1/2'' x 5'' x 3'' is made out of clay using slab construction. It is a mug in the shape of a deer head and its neck with brown eyes, a black nose, and very light brown horns coming out of is head making handles. It has real lines such as the sgraffito shapes making its mouth and fur details. The geometric circle eye ball, organic shape for the nose. The mug itself is an organic form including the horns coming out of its head and nthe nose protruding out front. It consists of dark values such as black and dark brown, mid-tones of golden brown, and light values of light brown and white. There is tactile texture in the white fur under the neck and visual texture in the fur everywhere else. This color scheme is realistic to a deer with earth tones. This deer mug has informal balance if you cut it in half ....depending... There is a variety of colors like black and dark browns to light browns and whites. The focal point is the eyes, because it is the most detailed and has the most contrast. There is a repetition of colors and textures to create harmony and unity. Your eyes move from the eyes down the neck and back up the horns. The title of this piece is ''Bambi'' which shows that it is a deer because Bambi is a deer. It is objective because you can tell that it is a mug in the shape of a deer. It is applied because you can drink out of it. I imitated nature or the the real world when making this deer mug. I wanted to create the feeling of.... I love this piece because I think it turned out exactly how I imagined it. I think I am successful in imitating the real world by using realistic colors and textures on my deer mug.

The name of my 11”x17” oil pastel and charcoal piece is “Husky Eyes”. It is a realistic rendition of a closeup on a husky’s face done in the upper half with oil pastel and in the lower with charcoal. Of lines in the piece, there are implied lines where the black and white fur meet and where the cheek rounds out of sight, and there are real lines where there are rings around the eyes. The only actual shapes to be found in the piece are the organic almond shaped eyes. For this piece, the illusion of space is created from the focus, which is the detail in the fur, eyes, and muzzle, and the intensity and value, which would be the lights and darks of the oil pastels and charcoal. The values are brown, blue, black, and dark grey for darks, green, red, and grey for mid-tones, and white alongside light grey for the lights. The textures in the piece are visual, and range from the fur, to the surface of the eye, and also to the skin around the eye. The colors found in the piece are mostly cool with some warm colors mixed in, and the color scheme is a cool one that actually mocks up a monochromatic scheme in some ways. This piece of artwork is informally, asymmetrically balanced, as the face of the husky is at an angle and more of it is on one side than on the other. The emphasis of the piece is found in the eyes of the husky, as they are centrally located and have much contrast to the areas around them. When first looking at the piece, your eyes are first directed to the husky’s eyes, and then down the muzzle. The piece is unified through its use of color and texture, as both are found throughout the piece. The name, “Husky Eyes”, tells directly of how the piece is centrally focused on a husky’s eyes and upper face. The art is objective, as the subject is an easily recognizable breed of dog, a husky. The art is in the category fine art, and is concerned with both literalism and emotionalism. Regarding literalism, the piece is made to be in the likeness of a real dog with focus on qualities that give it realism and the illusion of space, using things such as focus, and intensity and value. Detailing emotionalism, the goal is to convey that the dog is curious and has seen something that has caught its attention, as that is why the piece focuses on the dog's eyes. I do appreciate the work, as it is decently composed and does infact look like the dog it is based on. The piece is successful at both imitating the real world and conveying the interpretation, as with literalism, the image does indeed look like original image through the use of techniques that create the illusion of space, such as focus and intensity alongside value, as well as with emotionalism, through which the 1000 mile stare the dog has conveys the initial interpretation, and also in conjunction with the cool color scheme that also supports the interpretation the dogs staring curiousity.

I titled this water color painting, "Monochromatic Apples". The dimensions are 6 inches high and 9 inches wide. The mediums are water color paint on paper. The apples and stems are organic shapes. To create the illusion of space I used focus and overlapping. I added more detail to the apples in the front to create focus. The two apples overlap each other. The contrasting dark and lights values also create the illusion of space. A cool color scheme is created through the deep blues. This painting has an informal balance because the apples are different shapes. The right apples highlight is the focal point because it's in the center of the painting, it's lighter than the rest of the apple and it creates contrast. The whole artwork is unified through the repetition of blues. I titled my painting "Monochromatic Apples" because it is two apples sitting side by side. I wanted to use the art elements to create formalism and show the value changes through one color. I like the artwork because I think it is well put together. I think I was successful in creating formalism through the contrasting values represented by one color.
