This project was one of my favorites and least favorites for a couple reasons. It was my favorite because I really liked working with water colors the fast pase of it really matched how I like doing things. I also really liked how water color looks in general I think its really cool how it layers so well. I didn't like it because the theme was repetitive(I think) and I didn't want to add anything and mess up my jar that worked hard on. I feel like I could of added something decent, but I didn't want it to be decent I wanted it to match how I felt about the jar.
This was one of my favorite projects we did. Once I knew how to make a marbled background from the tissue paper I felt like I got the hard part out of the way. What got me excited to do this project was the theme because I like things that make you wonder and are questionably controversial. I liked how I didn't need to plan much for this project it was more in the moment. I felt like the hardest part of this projects was just finding out where to put the pictures. I really liked how this turned out and I enjoyed showing it to people to see their reaction.
The mini lessons were very beneficial to the success of the project because I learned how to
correctly use a color pencil when drawing. I showed contrast in my work because I made the kiwi standout by using a dark blue background color. I decided to use color pencils as my medium and I chose them because I felt like I was better at using them then the rest of the options. The technique that used to create my work was a lot of shading and knowing when and when not to apply pressure. Overall, I was very please with the out come of my kiwi I thought it looked really realistic
They were very beneficial, I would not of been able to create my final product without the mini lessons because I learned so much. I showed contrast in my work by making the planets stand out with its dark shading against the white in the tv. I think it added great detail to the artwork. I chose to use pencil because that was the medium I was most comfortable with. I used a lot of shading techniques to create this piece of art. Overall I liked this project but it was not my favorite because it lacked color.
