Art 1 Final Portfolio
3. The ladscape painting was the piece of art that used the most skills and techniques I learned from my previous projects. I think this painting exhibits how much I've grown this year in art. In this painting, I incorporated many skills from other projects. One technique is drawing it out before putting it on the canvas, which I also had to do for the print and clay projects. I also used my knowledge on the iPad software to make a rough draft of what my painting would look like which I learned from our values unit. The values unit and the color unit helped equip me with the skills and knowledge for the actual painting portion of this project. I added darker shades to the blue as it grew closer to the horizon line. I did the same with the sky. With the sand, I made it lighter as it grew towards the water. I added some value to the trees to make them appear 3-dimensional. I found that this project exhibits the best how I've grown in art. I'm now more comfortable with adding different values and colors to make a painting or drawing look more "alive". I feel that this project used the most techniques and skills from previous projects and that I grew the most in the process of doing this project.
5. The stencil project was the project that reflected me as an artist the most. In this project, I was able to come up with my own art using references from real pictures. Also, my inspiration for this project made it personal to me. My goldfish, Joey, inspired the subject of the art, and the name of it which is "Joey". I enjoyed being able to make several copies of my art in different colors and then seeing how they all looked together. I feel this project reflects me because it's simple, but unique. I also find this project personal because I was able to incorporate my favorite elements and skills of art. I liked sketching it and cutting it out of the linoleum. I also enjoyed the painting portion since I like to paint. I liked to pick out the colors of the paint and paper; I thought that it made it more personal to choose the colors. This project reflects me as an artist because I was able to use all of my favorite elements of art in one project. It was personal because of the object of the art and I was able to choose the colors.
