I thought this project was really fun and exciting. Even though it took a lot of time thinking, it was worth it. As I was completing this project, I thought, “wow. I just painted and it looks pretty weird”. I didn’t enjoy painting at all honestly. The last time I’ve painted, was when I was five years old and doing it again now felt really awkward and nerve-racking. Anyway, I thought the collage parlors a real thinker because it was hard to think about what to make to be the focal point without using any body parts from my photo. But it was still fun to do. I’ve learned to just have fun with this project, not rush or think too hard about being perfect. But I thought I should did the painting better because it doesn’t look neat and rushed. Next time I’ll try to have a steady pace with my projects in the future and not think to hard.
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!
