Class 21 | Balance, Symmetry Field Trip (free study)

For me this was a very challenging project but at the same time a very fun Project .

I tried to incorporate my interest of fashion and fashion illustration into the theme of Ben  metaphor, balance, and the range of saturation (prismatic, muted and chromatic gray).

I used the same color and but in different ways.

My Design Process includes two pieces of art that i later on Merged together

First i started doodling while we were in the train station the birds in the ben art.  so i knew i wanted to incorporate into my piece somehow

After that i was inspired by the subway so i started sketching that inPelimary sketch 1 b

I knew i wanted to incorporate Ben idea of departures and arrivals so i sketched people to add to my scene subway art sketch


After playing Around in Photoshop for few hours  here is my final work Subway Art

My idea was the arrival and departure of people from different decades in the subway a futuristic subway and i incorporated my bird in the subway wall art . The Colors i chose to add to my   are elements of the color theories we been studying in class.

Class 19 | Prismatic Color Studies

This is my prismatic color composition. For this assignment I could only use primary colors and secondary colors. My personal challenge while completing this assignment was finding ways to accentuate the color scheme but yet not mix colors to create new shades and also having to repaint the same areas twice to bring out the colors.

Class 18 | Muted Color Studies

Narrow Range Photo
Muted Color Studies – Exercise #2:
Muted Color Studies – Exercise #1
Muted Color Studies – Exercise #1

This is my muted colors composition. For this assignment I made many different shapes so I can paint in different shades of the same color. I chose Geometric shapes and colors that i think will stand out compared to the other one. The image to the right is my narrow range value composition. For this image I chose colors that are more relevant to each other, unlike the other image which looks like it has more contrast. This assignment was really fun, the colors were a challenge to make but I really like the outcome.

Color Triads (FreeStudy)


Hi class..

To me I really enjoyed making this assignment
So what we had to do was Create a Freestudy composition using primary (Red, Yellow, Blue) and secondary (Orange, Green, Violet) triads on a piece of 9″x12″ bristol with gouache.
With our color wheel as a guide, practice mixing and applying colors on a piece of scrap paper, first. Making sure we have achieved the proper hue before applying the paint to paper.

I chose my design of a flower as my color triad free study .

Line and Sound
Expression of Form, Emotions, or Concepts
Mapping Personality
Using the geometry produced by the sound pulse of a recording of my name in accordance with my initial sketches, I was able to produce a waveform line that acted as the inspiration for the topography of the mountain.
The waveform line was then “bent” to form the peak of the mountain.
The text used in the project are words that describe who I am as well as my personal interests. They come together to form an overall texture and gradually decrease in width toward the peak of the mountain to create a sense of hierarchy and three dimensional interest. At the mountain peak, the word fashion is the center focal point of the entire work. Fashion is the foundation of my ideas and thoughts and will always be present as a inspiration for my work.
I have chosen to add a river to my topography symbolizing the flow and the connectivity between my personality traits. A stitching of thread held in place by sewing pins illustrates the bind that fashion has on all of the layers of the topography. The river was placed between the dip in sound created between my first and last name.
