My name is Corinne Lynema, and before this year, I had never considered myself any good at art. It was something that I had always enjoyed, and yet it was not something that I had ever tried to work on, aside from classes in Elementary and Middle School. This year, however, I thought that it would be a nice change of pace to take my first year of High School art. The pictures below depict my art throughout Beginning Drawing, showing how I've improved and what I've learned over the course of the semester.
This was one of the first real pieces we did during the beginning of the semester, and one that helped me with a lot of the more technical portions that are important in art, including texture, space, color, lines, shapes, form, and value. I was particularly happy with how the form section turned out, but regardless, this entire piece helped me open my mind to what I would have to be focusing on for the rest of the semester.
Though not one of my favorite pieces, this is where you start seeing how my art improved from the beginning of the year. This started to help me see how to look at the negative space around the object instead of the object itself, expecially on the side of the drawing with less detail.
