Up close and personal

1. Upclose and Personal was our theme. How did you develop your ideas for this project and why did you choose your subject?

I chose the ladybug because when i think if up close i think of a small thing like a big.

2. How did you demonstrate Emphasis in your work?

I used complimentary colors to show the different values in both the ladybug and the leaves.

3. What medium did you decide to use and why did you choose this medium over the others? Discuss how it enhances your piece.

I chose prisma colors because they are easy to blend with each other and an overall easy medium to use. The other reason is that it is less messy than the other mediums.

We encourage risk taking in art. Risk taking can be as simple as trying a new technique or learning about a new medium to as complex as trying something totally new.

4.. Did you take any risks with this project? Explain.
I did go darker than i usually do in this piece of art. On te shadow i took a risk and made it dark with a purple and it turned out pretty good.
5. Of the 5 characteristics of great art (technique, concept, emotion, new, medium) which did you include in your art?

I used medium and technique to make my ladybug. My technique is alot different from everyone elses so mine stood out alot from everyones.
