View From My Window : Critique/Assessment

To be honest, I thought this project would be pretty easy to do at first, but as we started to really get things together, that turned my whole perspective around.

This is my first project in this class and it provides a lot of hard work and focus. I didn’t think it would be that hard. When I mean hard, I mean frustrating, but I guess that’s what art is suppose to be. It’s not always going to easy breezy. Shockingly I enjoyed the hard work (even though it took me 4 1/2 half hours to do the final work and made my hand & fingers cramp up) it was all worth it to get a decent grade.

I learned that things like this take patience and time to finish. Also, good planning each step successfully. I got to learn more about the economy and unity in my images that helped me see what belonged to makes everything come together as one, but also have less of the meaning to what it is. (Less is more). ¬†Even the two famous words in he class, stable & amibigious. Those two would be the main vocabulary words I’m going to be using this semester.

I’m sort of excited for waits coming next!

Project #1 : Reflecting

As I read my comments was very relieved to see how my draft turned out pretty well. One of the comments made me smile the most when it read that it really made that person think more about their draft and try to approve their draft. I wanted the reader to know me and I did just that without rambling and going off topic. I wanted it to be clear for the readers. I’m glad that they enjoyed reading it. But I thought I needed to fix something’s. Oh well. I didn’t want this to be dull and uninteresting to anyone. I did a lot of writing in the past so I would say I can make it pretty eye-catching to the reader. I’m not trying to brag but it’s the truth.¬†¬†Well, I’m glad and relieved from those positive and honest comments ūüôā

Thanks!

Project #1: Introducing Yourself (Draft & revised)

¬† ¬† ¬† Hi, I would like to explain more into what I’m deeply passionate about and that is art. I feel that i can’t live without it. I think if i never was introduced in drawing or observe any other art work, my mind/thoughts/ideas would be boring and uncreative. It starts with a pencil onto paper and just letting the ideas flow out on the paper. Its fun and amazing experience. ¬†Anyway, I don’t really know what i see as my design aesthetic because I never really thought about it as I work on a drawing. But I’ll certainly think about it more and will put it here. In five years, I see myself as in as an art teacher for middle schoolers and teaching them the ways of art and inspire them to wanting to know more. Plus, i know i won’t be boring in the topic, it’s all going to be fun.

¬† ¬† ¬† Well, of course, most of you don’t know me ¬†and I don’t know you, but you can figure out specific details in my image/profile. It would be kind of hard to point some out at first because I don’t have the “best” background to make a clue of what i’m interested in. And No, my favorite color isn’t yellow haha because its the background. I will call out some of them to shine some light to all of you. First, i’m wearing a wine color beanie. I love wearing hats, but mostly beanies. I wear them to hide my hair cause i don’t feel right when my hair is down. Sometimes i don’t wear them, but i mostly do. It might be weird to you, but it doesn’t stop me from wearing it. It makes me comfortable and its like apart of me in a non-weird way. Second, I’m wearing a black & white poka dotted collared shirts. I like these types of shirts and the dots because to me, it shows that i’m sort of preppy with the collar and the poka dots represents the fun and silly personality. Also, i just love black and white because it’s simple and i’m a simple person. ¬†Therefore, this image represents me as being a simple, fun, silly, and hat lover, which is interesting, right?

¬† ¬† ¬†Obviously, the image can be misinterpreted and see way differently than what i see. ¬†If someone might understand it differently than i intended, it’s totally understandable. They would see that my favorite is yellow or i don’t look silly, but shy. I might agree with those thoughts and might not, but thats how life is. We can’t be 100% about certain things, even if we think we are.

¬† ¬† Finally, I will explain what my profile will covey about me overall. ¬†I would say ¬†passionate and independent but mostly independent. I’m alone and not much to really figure out to help express myself. I don’t like to rely on others to help me do what things in life. I want to learn more about myself and what new things I can be intrigued by. Also, to express myself in my own way on my outer shell than copy or follow others. Overall, this matters because having that type of attitude will guide me to my goals and become successful in life.

A View From My Window : Research

It’s 7 in the morning and it’s a perfect opportunity to describe what I see through my window. Obviously, the sun is still rising, but I can’t really see it rise because it’s blocked by the trees and houses. But. At 6 something a.m. , I can see the colors of the sky change within the two hours. The blending of the colors that appear and the outlines of the clouds sometimes. The colors usually look purplish, orange, reddish, yellowish, or a little pink. It’s amazing to witness how the darkness of the sky transforms with popping of gorgeous colors. Anyway, in the same direction of where I can see the sky are the tallest trees on my street. I would say they’re in my neighbor’s backyards, whom are across the street from my house. I’m shocked til this day by how those trees stayed put through the mighty storms throughout the years. Even shocked that they weren’t cut down because of how tall they are and that can lead to danger of them falling on to the houses. But I HOPE that doesn’t happen. EVER.

Today is pretty windy, so, I can watch the branches sway side to side, left to right slowly or wild like. With the sun still rising, I can see the outline around them better and the details of the inside more from the sunlight poking through it. Moving on, I can see the tannish color side wall of my next door neighbor’s house and part of his concrete front yard. The wall has a long on-going parallel lines which it looks like a rectangle from here. I even see one of my across the street neighbors (that’s in the same view of where the trees are). The house is light blueish that has the same triangle and square structure design as the other houses on my street. Plus, ¬†I can clearly see the cable wires cut between the tan and blue house. Sometimes you can spot a squirrel running along the thin wires. I would say i can enjoy staring pass this window at time to time.
