Describe: My art is a stenciled piece with spray paint. What I wanted to convey was a simple demonstration of a childhood memory, even though not many people know who The Little Prince is. The title of this painting is called My Little Prince and I think that the spray paint is quite clear and the stenciled makes it have a neat organized look.
Create: As mentioned before, this is just spray paint. To create this final piece I had to find a picture of the Little Prince and then make to just black and white, to get the negative and positive contrasts. After printing that I traced around him to get him onto the paper and with an exact-o knife I cut out the negative colors, then I put the stenciled piece on top of my final paper and spray painted, that's it.
Big Idea: Well at first I had no idea of that i wanted to do, then I thought i was going to do squidward but then decided to do the Little Prince because on Pinterest there were some cool ideas about him and I really like him.
Goals: For right now I only have the goal to experience a variety of different art medias, and find out what is best suited for me.
Thoughts: In my project I learned how to use spray paint and how to stencil. Even though this isn't totally what I envisioned, I am surprised how it came out. In future art pieces I will now know how to make things better.
Describe: I think my artwork looks at a beginner's state. Since this is my first time having to do an art piece, I didn’t really have a meaning or subject for it. I think the ink for the silhouette was the main part of this piece.
Create: For the background I used soft pastels and India Ink for the silhouette. With the soft pastels I tried to blend the colors correctly so that they could bled into each other. And for the silhouette I used Aqua Flo brushes for the basic drawing and a quill pen for finer detail.
Big Idea: What inspired me to do this is a picture I saw on pinterest and liking how you don’t have to put so much detail in the silhouettes. Plus I like how deep black looks as a contrast with other colors. I did make it so that the girl would as though she was a part of the tree, but it’s all up to your interpretation.
Goals: I guess I would say that I have a goal to find out what I am best at and then head in that direction to enhance my skills in that area. This piece did help me to see that I enjoy pastels and would like to do more with them. Also I am less scared to use ink (and mess up), and be more creative.
My Thoughts: I’ve learned that when blending colors, it’s good to make sure that they all merge and flow nicely. My final piece actually turned out better than I thought, which I’m very surprised by. As mentioned before, I was scared to messing up with the ink, especially on the girl’s silhouette. Doing this piece helps me to see what I can do better in the future, and shows me that I am capable of not messing up with ink (which I enjoyed working with).
