I have never used Acrylic paint before, but this learning experience was very fun and I learned a lot. When I first started planning my picture, I drew it out on the canvas with a pencil to sketch out where I would paint which colors. The painting process started, and the paint began to be very light colors but as I continued, I learned that the more layers of paint you added, the darker and closer your paint looks to the actual paint color. The experience working with this paint was complicated at first, but later became easier to manage and work with. The main problem that I had was the paint would smear on top of the other color paints, where I didn't want it to go. Then later I figured out that if I used smaller brushes, I could have finer detail than with a bigger brush. I really enjoyed working and remixing "The Scream" art piece that was originally created in 1893 by Edvard Munch. He created different versions of this painting which included being made with Tempera, Oil Paint, and Pastels. Edvard created many other fine art pieces, that can be inspiration to many other artists. My overall thoughts on how I did is that i think For the first time working with Acrylic paint I think I did a pretty good job.
The first two days I practiced exploring the basics of oil pastels. Learning how to blend, and show lighting and how it affects the artwork. I was struggling with being able to turn a normal picture into something that could be done with oil pastels. While working, Mrs. Shumann came and helped me learn how to use the oil pastels and how to blend them to make light reflections, and water. This help gave me what i needed to complete the practice. As I continued to practice using oil pastels, wanted to work on my ability to show reflections. I found a sunset reflecting off the water picture online, and wanted to imitate it with oil pastels. I have pictures of these steps that i took to document, but they will not load onto the weebly because it wont let me add blogs and pictures.
Let's get something straight, I am no professional artist but here I am, trying my best at making art. Ever since I was little I liked to work with my hands and making things. Even though I am not an artist, doesn't mean I am not trying my best at everything that I'm making in this Art Design Studio Class.
