"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic bean buyer, if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for i have some flax golden tales to spin. Come in, Come in." -Shel Sylverstien, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Looking Back....

I know the school year is going by so fast, so I think it is about time to reflect on the past marking period. I have done two or three large projects and quite a few smaller projects in class as well. We have colored paper, drawn fruit and Igors, and worked in different mediums than I am used too. I don't think I have changed any since the beginning of the marking period, but I have the entire rest of the school year and the following years too. The only change I felt so far was when i drew my self portrait, stepped back, and realized I could draw people, as well as animals ( I mostly draw animals). I am looking forward  to doing more things like that in the upcoming year. 

Portrait of Happiness

Hello, and welcome back!
Lately I have been working on a self portrait. I had my picture taken a few weeks ago and have been working on turning it into a tempered painting ever since. A tempered drawing is basically intentionally damaging your picture beyond repair. It will turn out looking really nice, though. I am still in the process of painting a practice of my portrait, but pretty soon I will ink it and color it in with colored pencil. It is actually a longer process than I just made it seem. I need to finish painting, dry that, paint ink over that, let that dry, wash the ink off, let that dry, and color it in with colored pencil. Trust me, it will look fantastic when it is finished.

A drawing a day...

Greetings Bloggers!
In the beginning of the marking period, my art class began working on fruit drawings. We began with drawings in simple pencil(HB, 2H, and 6B). I needed the guidelines for how to darken the drawing and lighten it. My teacher helped me with that. I am pretty sure that my drawing turned out well. When that was finished, the teacher showed the class how to draw in colored pencil. I didn't have much experience with colored pencil (I am normally a pastel user) so I had some difficulty with it. I drew a cut apple and a whole apple. Both that drawing and my pencil drawing will go in my art book at the end of the year. I can't wait!
