I changed the original landscape, motion, and architecture, into compositions of Cropping, the Rule of Thirds, and the Golden Spiral. It improved because the first time I didn't do that the first time. I learned more about the rules of composition, and I redid my photos to capture the essence of my artwork.
My artwork is a tree and its leaves are geometrical. It has rainbow oil pastel blended leaves on the ground too, drawing the viewer's eye to that as well. The media I used is oil pastel. I was inspired by my love for color and brightness everywhere, even where things aren't. I learned that it is okay to change your vision as you are doing your artwork, and that your vision can change only if you redo your piece continuously. My goals as an artist are to have a message in my art, and I believe I achieved that.
My art looks like an elk running through the mountains, and my title of my artwork is, ‘Elk Running Through the Mountains.’ My artwork is made of watercolor pencil. I tried to show a sort of mystical ness in my art piece. I learned how to blend different colors in my artwork and make it come together. It’s not what I pictured for my final piece, but it was my first watercolor pencil piece.
My artwork looks mostly gloomy and gray, but there is a hint of color. It was nonrepresentational. The title of my work is ‘The World’. The elements most prominent in my work is charcoal and ink wash. The ink wash station was my favorite station because it really changed the whole bland theme, and metaphorically showed how there can be a little bit of good in the world. Melanie Martinez inspired my art because her music has hidden real world emotional and thoughtful meanings, but is covered with a childish demeanor. My work expresses the political and social norms and how reformed and duplicated the world has made us. People put us into categories and the color and light in my art is depicting individualism and breaking free from the image others have of us. My goals as an artist is to change ideas and make people think about what they believe and why they believe it. This piece helped to reach my goal because it makes people question if they are making individuals of themselves and change the world. This wasn’t the final piece I had in mind, but I was experimenting with different mediums. Making this piece was a little out of my comfort zone because I enjoy color and hue, whereas in this piece we used quills and charcoal to make this piece darker and abstract. I learned that it is ok to try different mediums and use darker values, and it doesn’t ruin the piece.
