In my News Article project I picked an article that was talking about the temperature in Antartica hitting a record high of 65 degrees. I decided to make my polar bear the focal point because with the temperature going up they are one of many animals that are greatly effected by this and they are endangered. I tried to make my artwork follow the quote “Less is more” because I think with this topic even though it is a simple piece it speaks volumes. I created value within the blue to make it look more like the ocean. With the polar bear I got a picture from online and edited it to make it have more texture by rubbing water and paint onto the paper. Texture is also shown on the blue because I used a sponge to dab the paint onto the paper. A sense of depth was created with the polar bear because it lifts off the page a little. I made the polar bear have tears coming out of its eyes to show how sad the situation is. The ice that the polar bear is standing on is also melting which was created by diluting the paint.
