Make your Mark (Line Drawing) Reflection

In art class, we have been making a line. We chose a picture(black and white) and started drawing with pencil  first and adding details with permanent marker. We needed to use different line techniques in our drawing.

The Process made over the unit


First we were practise line and gradation (Value&Tone), using different types of line and patterns (Space and Direction); Cross-hatching, Hatching, Stipple, Scumble, Contour hatching, Random hatching,textures, positive, negative space and more.

Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 2.28.03 PMWe  researched two famous artists. Durer, Rembrant and Van Gogh, I learned that all of this artists had a different style of drawing, so when they used same types of line but looks different or they draw same objects but explain different way.

Then we learned more about artists sketch. We compare  different artists sketch. I did “Vincent van Gogh : Cottage Garden (1888)” and “Albrecht Durer : in his cell (1514)”.

When we did the plan we practice a lot like used trace paper, tried to draw 3 different types/stale(use different line or tone and different types of pen)

(<-My first practice)if I’m going to do this work agin I think I need to change ground, middle ground and sky because the right bottom part you can see much details but other ground part its looks like mostly white and also sky if look at the original picture  you can see really good gradation but my final work show justblack part,white part and  gray part.I need to spend equal time to each part and use more different types of line techniques .


Overall, I think I improved a lot because when I compare to my first drawing and final work I add much details on final work also I improved many skills gradation, hatching and tone (value).

Reflection on Park Illustration

In art class we had to make a park illustration. I learned watercolour skill and how to make more better artwork.

1. What was your progress made over the Park Illustration unit?

First I saw the Tommy Kane video then I needed to answer What did I see, what did Tommy Kane do, what materials did he use, what techniques did he use, what made his visual journal so good. After this work I when to the park then draw the place but it was just practice, I think I’m draw 2 place(practice) than I chose the final place then draw the line, between the practice and final draw I leaned  10 watercolour skill.

(this this watercolour skill I needed to used on my draw)


2. How you used feedback to improve your artwork?

I improved my art work by feedbacks from my peers. I got feedbacks from Garrick. Garrick said I needed to use more  watercolour skills so I’m think about more watercolour skills like how can I use this skills or when I use this skills.

(this is my feedback)



3. If you were going to do this work again, what would you do differently and why?

If I’m going to do this work again I want to improve my skill and make more realistic because I think now my skill was vary simple so I want try difficult work and use more colour. And I want do batter sketches.

this is my art work!

I like this unit because I can learned watercolour skill and I like art.
