TRANSPARENCY

TRANSPARENCY

The transparency project using our paints was pretty fun. Throughout the semester I was getting tired of doing a lot of black and white images and was excited to use color. Even though I did enjoy the results, I felt this project was very tedious and frustrating. Mixing the paints I feel was the most difficult part for me, especially the tertiary colors. I used the painting knife to mix my paints and my test strips but my colors were just not coming out the way I wanted. I also felt for this project we was not given much time to complete when it came to the second round. I really did enjoy the way we started out the project by randomly creating different types of shapes. It was interesting to see the different style and size of the shapes that everyone came up with. I also liked playing around with the tints and tones. My favorite colors that I mixed for my tints and tones were blue and white which created a nice light blue and red and black, which created a gorgeous burgundy color. Overall, even though the process to complete this project was a bit frustrating I was satisfied with my final results and I enjoyed everyone else’s.

TEXTURE/ FIGURE/ GROUND

TEXTURE/ FIGURE/ GROUND

This project was one of my favorite’s out of all the projects we have done in class this semester. Although I do believe the process was very difficult and tedious. The reason I feel that it tedious was because of the time and technique that was required to complete the assignment. I also feel it was difficult because of how hard it was to find certain textures to mimic onto the paper. Luckily my boyfriend who used to work for NIKE has a ton of sneakers in the house that came in handy even though certain textures were not suitable for the project. My favorite part of this project was transferring the images and textures onto the other half of the bristol paper that we were required to work on. It was also fascinating to see how the all the different shapes played in together being that they were all placed closed to each other. The painting I would have to say was my least favorite part because of how detailed and careful I had to be given the fact that the different images were small in size. Overall, I was happy with how my final results came out and proud at myself at the same time. Given all of the time and effort I put into it.

SPOTS PROJECT IMAGE 3

I found this project to be a little fun and not as complicated as our other projects. The process took a while given the fact that I had to re-do it on a different type of paper. Originally, I did it on Bristol paper instead of drawing paper. I enjoyed utilizing the terms that we learned from our in class journals in each of our drawings. I felt that doing the journals and discussing them in class did give me a better understanding of certain commercial advertisings that I see on an everyday basis. It was fun playing around with my drawings and coming up with these different ideas when using these terms. The most difficult part for me was the smudging of the spots. I did not enjoy that part as much because it took the most time out of all of the steps to create these drawings. It was also a bit hard to render the same spots that were chosen for the projects. Being that they were random spots that were created with barely any thought. I did enjoy overall creating my 50/50 piece. Being that I enjoyed doing a 50/50 in my texture/figure/ground project, this one was just as fun and slightly easier since we didn’t have to work with ink or permanent markers.
