This is my favorite piece in the exhibition. It is based on another work of art by Seurat from the 1880’s called A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. I like this piece because of Steadman’s use of stippling and the contrast between the subjects and their location in the composition.
One of my favorite pieces was this poster of John Lennon. I like how the designer used analogous colors to create contrast.
I learned from this project that when adding another color a hue can appear differently than when it’s by itself. By adding another color you can change the hue, saturation, or value. I also learned that you can use hue, saturation and value to create the illusion of spatial depth.
From doing this project I have more of an appreciation for artists who use stippling because it was really tedious for me just to stipple 9 1 inch squares. I learned from this project how to use layering to show transparency. I also learned to take my time and have patience while using gouache.
This was part of an assignment during a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum, where I had to select a painting and attempt to sketch it with consideration to its proportions and relativity to all the objects. Scale and proportion played a big role in making this sketch. The frame had to have the right dimensions so I could get the right proportions and since there were 2 groups of fruit it was tricky getting them proportionate to the center of the painting.
These are drawings of 6 boxes that are not parallel from each other, one is a 5 minute sketch and the other has guidelines placed.
These are three boxes parallel from each other, one in one-point perspective and one in two-point perspective.
