This is a painting portraying my face from a somewhat side angle view. For this I used a pencil, an eraser, different colors of paint, and paper. The new skill I learned was color matching, because the colors of my original selfie match very well with my painting. The main art elements that are present are color and contrast. I used color to make the painting look accurate to my selfie, and the colors contrast each other very nicely. The main design elements I used were proportion and scale. I did this so the painting would look life like, and not like an alien ha ha. For example I made the nose in direct proportion to my lips by looking at my selfie and using the grid. The feeling of this painting is somber, because in my selfie I have a very neutral expression, and that is usually construed as somber or sad.
This is a drawing portraying myself. I did this by simply using a pencil, paper, and an eraser. For this project I learned the skills of scale and proportion. I had to use this to actually make my drawing look like a real human, more importantly, me. I did this by splitting up the face into 4 separate dimensions. The main art elements that are present in my drawing are shape and line. All the parts of my face are different shapes, and I had to take that into account when drawing this. I used Line to make all of these shapes. The main design elements were proportion and scale. As mentioned before I used these to make myself look like an actual human. For example for the eyes, I made one eye on one side of the grid, and then used an imaginary eye in the middle to figure out where on the other side to draw the other eye\, because that is generally how far apart eyes are on the human face. All the components and shapes in this drawing came together to represent my own face. I think the feeling of this drawing is unity, because all the separate parts come together to make one whole face.
This is a painting depicting leaves I found outside, arranged in a way that I thought looked good. The media I used was a water color paint set, 1 big brush, 1 small brush, paper, a pencil, a ruler, and an eraser. We had never used water colors before, so we learned how to blend colors to get an exact color we needed for a certain leaf. The main art element we used was color, because we had to use the paint to show how each of the leaves was a different color, and we had to get the perfect shade for each leaf. The main design element we used was contrast, because all of the leaves are different colors so they contrast one another. I think the mood of this painting is sadness and happiness, because some of the colors are lighter and happier, and some are darker.
