Make your mark ( Line drawing) Reflection

April18

In this few weeks, we worked on our line drawing. Our unit question was, “How can we communicate visually?”   We started of by talking about different skills about lines and then we practiced our different techniques for line drawing. This is my final work Click here

For  example, lines like ocean waves, lines like as clouds and others.

                          Second,  we worked on our lines by using black marker

Then our teacher gave us a picture and also she gave as a tracing paper, which we traced the picture with pencil first and then marker. photo 4 The good thing I did well on this is that, I did well on doing the dots for the Railway track and also making scrambles to show the rocks are bigger than the back, so I used scrambles in the front and at the back I used dots 🙂 Also I think I did well on the mountains too. I think I should improve on  the tones ( dark to white) because they all look the same. Still, it was my first time to do this so I think this artwork went pretty well.

After that we worked on At criticism. If you want to see click here The talk was to talk about the similarities and the differences from the pictures by Durer and VanGogh.  For me it was hard to write the judgement because both of the artworks are impressive 🙂

Finally but not least, we planned our final drawing like what techniques to use. It took a long  time to choose what kind of line will match my picture. beach-desktopBut I definitely knew that I will use dots for the sand and also the wave lines 😛

 

 

 

 

 

I like my foreground the best  because as you can see, I used lots of dots to show the sand of the sea and I used straight lines for the foreground  to show the sands are bigger than the back. Also there is more tones in the front more than at the back.  If I could change my line drawing now then…. I would change my waves because I can see that theres not much tone and I should of had made some of the wave lines  more fatter because they kind of look the same.  But still, I think I did good on my final drawing too.

In this unit, I think the hardest part for me was doing different techniques and doing tones using the black marker. I think by using paint is earlier to see the tone because you can mix colors if you want to make tones by adding white, but with black marker you can’t mix colour so it hard to choose if it was dark or not. Overall, it was a fun  unit for me 🙂

Reflection on Park Illustration

December10

In this few weeks we worked on our drawings. We went to a park and  we sketched our first draft, I drew a flower and other stuff. Then in our next class we went to the part again which I drew a different thing.  I drew a fountain ( that was our final draft) After that we colour in our drawing. Before that  we learned 10 skills of water colour paints. For example, salt which is a skill that you put the salt in wet paint and you dry it at the same time. Im not really good at art but I think I did good on this one. I showed it was a beautiful day. 

I used  the skill of Salt for the sky because I was thinking that it would be cool that the clouds are salt that just drawing the clouds. I used the stamps to make my artwork more interesting and I think my artwork is relax and calm. I used lots of green and blue colour because I wanted my artwork to be relax and it it also a nature colour. I used light blue because if the park is quiet and if you are relax then its like heaven. So I used light blue/blue to symbolized heaven.

2. Describe how you used feedback to improve your artwork. Include specific advice and specific examples of how you made improvements.

Well one of my comments were… its not really original. Maybe because it wasn’t finish or I didn’t have that much colour. I think my is original. I didn’t have the picture with me when I painted this so some parts, I used my emotions by colour.

3. If you were going to do this work again, what would you do differently and why? Thoroughly explain how these changes would improve your final work.

Most of the colours are not water paint so if I had time then I wanted to work on the techniques of water paint and also I wanted to finish my work a little bit more.

7th grade art – Illustrated Journal

November5

In Art class, we have been working on our visual journals. We worked on it during Field Studies and some classes before and  after. I write journals sometimes, but I never made a visual journal before so it was really fun designing and putting pictures on it. I think making a visual journal for field study was quit smart because sometimes you forget the fun memorise  you had and in your own journal you can show how fun it was! Also you get to go back and look at it. If there’s drawing and if its creative you like to go back again and I think its fun when it has  photo’s on it because pictures shows more details than just writing it 🙂

Before we got our journals, we first learned what a visual journal is, and what we need to do. We looked at  books and people’s examples and talked about What makes a great journal. I think a great journal need to have Picture’s, colour, not to much words, creative and some others. Then we experiment mediums. In Field Study, we worked on it each day. I worked on my visual journal at the end of the day or when we have free time  in our room with my friends, and  shared our mediums (materials) with each other. Whenever I couldn’t remember what we did that day, my friends helped me or I look at my photo’s that I took on that day.  I was able to work on my journal everyday and it helped me remember what we did when I got back. Because of the journal, I was able to tell it was an AWESOME field study and what we did each day to my parents.

In my visual journal, I tried use different colours to express my feeling 🙂 Everyday was a great day so I used lots of yellow and other bright colours but some of the activities we did there was challenging like mountain biking so I didn’t use that much of a bright colour. I used the colour light blue/ blue a lot  for example when we all watched the movie Coraline. I used light blue for the background because it was calm and relaxing. Also some parts were sad and other part was scary too. On the other hand I used water colour pencil when I want to make my background light or when I’m colouring the sky. I learned that normal pens would smear when we use water colour pencil so we should use a sharpie. Also I learned that making a journal helps me remember a lot of things and some times it hooks your attention and you want to look at it again 😀  It can also become a memory.

 

 

Next time when I make another journal, I will NEVER EVER~ use normal marker, I will use a sharpie so that It won’t mess the work up. Also I would like to stick flowers and leaves in my journal.

I really hope we can do this again but not in a assessment 😛
