Confidence in art is crucial and one way to develop this trait is through contour line drawings. Contour line is one continuous line that can be broken up to create patterns. It differs from sketch lines because it is drawn in one straight direction, instead of back and forth.
In "Lines Through Nature" I used contour lines to create a branch of Crape Myrtle being supported by geometric blue lines. Even nature, with its organic shapes and whimisical attitude, neets structure and guiding.
Global warming is an issue that has been folded up and placed in our back pockets. The human represents this negligence that we have used to deal with global warming. We may say we care about he walrus, which represents the innocence and helplessness of the planet, but we treat it like something that will unfold itself. The polar bear floats away in its loneliness on a melting iceberg, similarily to our morals melting away. We continue to send out steam ships full of pollution, like we are sending the polar bear to its doom.
My perspective watercolor not only taught me new shading techiniques, but also helped my mom decide which nursing home she wants to live in. It's very expensive and I will probably go broke from paying for it, but I think we can all agree as humans, Chick-Fil-A is the only thing that matters. So when I grow up and am all cozy on my park bench, I will think back to this painting and its signifigance in my life.
"Three Questions" is a piece inspired from a poem by Taylor Tutt also called "Three Questions." It was created by carving a stamp out of a matrix and using the nagative spaces to create the image. I then used watercolor to design the backdrop. Afterwards, I pressed the ink covered matrix on the watercolor, creating the piece above. There were 5 total in the series, but in my opinion, this one came out the best.
A Girmoose is a cross between a giraffe and a moose. His name is Danny. Do not look him in the eye, he does not have any. He’s actually really insecure about that.
