I enjoyed doing this project. I decided to do one of my collages with organic shapes which was extremely difficult to start off with. Learned about broad range and narrow range values and other terms like high key and low key. If I had a little more time, I would have planned the collages a little better before hand. We used Adobe Photoshop which was pretty easy and we also used Gouache which I never knew about. I’m glad we got to explore with more hands on art work. The knowledge we going for this will help me set certain tones and mood for my future compositions.

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 3

Narrow-Range Digital Collage & Narrow-Range Collage

Broad-Range Painting & Broad-Range Collage

Painting my broad range collage was a little difficult and it was easier to do the digital version of the narrow range collage. Overall I enjoyed the project.

Hour(s) Spent: 4.5

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 2

Broad Range- Low Key

Narrow Range- High Key

The post in Phase 2 asked me to refine my writing and add it to the post. However, in the guidelines of phase 2 it doesn’t mention any writing.

Hour(s) Spent: 4

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 1

High Key

 

 

Low Key

High key images are usually brighter and have a lot of highlights. The exposure from the light creates a subtle and positive tone to the image. This positive tone creates  pure, peaceful, happy and other positive feelings. My image sets a very peaceful tone.

Low key images are usually darker and have a lot of depth in shadows. The depth of the shadows create a dark and negative tone to the image. This negative tone creates mysterious, depressing and other negative feelings. My image sets a very mysterious tone.

Hour(s) Spent: .5

 

 

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 4

This project tome was the longest. It was interesting using gouache paint for the first time. It was difficult to me, I’ve never really been good at painting in general. Creating specific shades of light and darks was a challenge, partly because of mixing the wrong proportions of black and white and adding to much or too little water to the mixture. Something I could’ve done better was manage my time properly to have been able to finish in time. Overall it was a challenging and enjoyable project.

Phase 3

Phase 2

Phase 1

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 3

This took me a while to finally finish. The Narrow-Range Digital Collage took the longest due to the amount of small shapes the original collage has. Overall I am pleased with my work.

Time Spent : 4 – 5 hours

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 2

Time Spent : 3 hours

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 3

Time worked on: 2 hours

Value-Added Portraits: Phase 4

During this project, I was able to better understand value, broad-range, and narrow-range terms. It was somewhat challenging to work with gouache paint since it was a bit of a hassle. I enjoyed recreating one of the portraits in photoshop since I have a lot of experience with that program. I was also able to recognize what images had a broad range and which ones had a narrow range, that was something I had difficulty with at the beginning of this project.
