Most successful Project
My most successful project that I did was the Perspecive Project that I made with the hockey pucks and stick. This was probably the second hardest project to make (other than the Artist recreation painting) because of having to get the value of the pucks. It was hard because pucks are normally black, so having to add value to something black took a while for me to get used to doing. Also having to add the texture to the ice was tedious to do. Since the ice is white, I couldn't make it too dark, but also not too light to show no value. Some of the choices I made really made this project look better than I planned. Adding stacks of pucks made it look like the line of pucks on the ice weren't so symmetrical. Also making some pucks closer and farther, keeping it random. I'm also glad that I chose pencil to make this project instead of pen and ink or other materials. Since I'm familiar with pencil, it helped me do better on the project, plus adding better values in different parts of my piece.
The two mini lessons that were befinicial to me were the value charts and lessons because know how to add value to anything you make, makes the artwork look more realistic and overall better. Plus you can use value in any kind of art style you choose. The second mini lesson was the painting/watercolor lessons. They helped me learn how to blend paint together and make different colors with the primary colors. Us spending a lot of time on the mini lesson really helped me get a better feel of how to paint, which helped me do better on my final piece. Painting and watercoloring was something I was never really good at, until we started doing these lessons. I started to get the feel of painting and how to do certian things like blending colors, value, and more. Plus I realized how much little paint you use when watercoloring, and how to stretch the amount the use with water, and adding many layers. I also feel like the amount of work and time we did for the lessons really showed me how to do what we were suppose to do, and allowed me to succeed in both of the projects and any projects I'm doing onward.
