Over the year, i have learned a lot about who i am in art. I have grown so much because of this class and i am very thankful for everyone that has helped me along the way. This year was lots of fun because i have gained so many new skills in art and i have learned what i really like to do. I enjoy watercolor painting a lot, but i also enjoy other styles also because you can get so many different perspectives with different media. In this class, i have tryed different styles and i have discovered that watercolors is my nych for now. I plan to continue, in doing different styles of art in the future and i will use the skills from this class to help me. Overall a great year and this class has made a huge impact on my art.
This is a picture of Vw bus's chilling in a old yard with overgrown grass and everything. I love it because i think they look cute with all of them chilling. I would like to paint more pieces like this of Vw's
This is a picture from duke gardens in Japan, that i painted in watercolor paints. I like all the bamboo shoots and the pen complementing it. After this picture i have darkend everything up with paint and more pen. I enjoy all the colors in the piece.
This is my dream Vw Bus, that I painted in watercolors. The background is the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. ON top of the bus is my Yakima gear. If I could have this Bus i would take it in a heartbeat. I would live in this car and go everywhere.
This is a picture of a sailboat in Oriental. I took this on a cloudy day when the days were warm. I chose this piece to go with my concentration because i would go adventuring down to the coast and this boat caught my eye while i walk down to the dock. I started this piece with the water in front, then
This is a Vw bus picture from my friend. It is from a trip that we went, and this picture was taken in Georgia. I really enjoy this picture because one, it has a Vw bus and second, it is a nice compesition. In this picture i decided to not use black watercolor because it can ruin the piece, so i only purples and dark bluse for the dark spots. This picture was really fun to paint because i enjoyed painting and layering all the colors on top of each other to make a final piece. I think if I keep adding on to this piece, i will brighten up the bus some more, so that it will stand out more. This piece gos along with my concentration because it shows one of my adventures that make me who i am. This piece was awesome because of the pretty Vw bus and how it is turning through the corner, it excites me and i love painting all of it together. I think the piece need some more values, and some richness added to it, but overall it looks really cool with the purples and yellows.
This is a picture from Arizona, where the desert runs into the san fransico peaks in Arizona. I enjoy the strong compesition and colors in this piece, and i also enjoy how it has turned out. I started off by using light layers and darkening up as i go but i have also started to leave white to have more a eye catching contrast with the mountains. This piece goes along with my concentration because it shows one of my adventures in more of a natural peaceful time with the cleared road and cleared landscape. I think this picture would look cool with trees or something else in it, but as it is, it gives off a very clear sight and straightforward focus on the mountains. I think if i did this piece again, i would try using acriylic paint on a canvas board but i guess ill have to try that on a another piece.
