- I think that this piece is the best to show for this question because I used so many different proccesses and techniques that I learned in this class. Using all the watercolor techniques that I was taught in the mini-unit before this unit I was able to combine them to create this piece which was one of my favorite throughout the year. I learned properlly use watercolors and make them actually look good, which I had never been able to do before this class.
- The think I found most difficult in this class was generating ideas for each of my projects. This project for example, I found it particuarly hard to find an idea that was clever and unique and hadn't been used before. It took me about 2 days to finally come up with the idea to use Q-tip heads as a medium. This project, however, turned out to be my favorite that I had done in the class as a whole, not only becuase it was a panda (my favorite animal) but because I spent so much time in it and how it gives me a sense of accomplishment.
Question 3: Do over: If given the opportunity, which project would you do over?
- I mot enjoyed working with clay because I really enjoying being able to mold and carve into the piece, and you can't do that in drawing. I think I least enjoyed the charcoal as a medium simply because it was a bit terrifying to work with and it was quite messy. I think working with the clay has really opened me up to art a bit more, I got a bit more enthusiastic about it and I was quite sad that there was only one project in which we worked with clay.
Question 5: Sketchbook: pick any warm-up from your sketchbook that you found beneficial, interesting or simply felt you handled well. Describe the activity and reason for selecting it above the others. Include photo.
