I had learned the most from the tempera painting . I had learned that when we used cardboard to draw our painting on that it was kind of hard to cut and remove the card board pieces to make the painting look more interesting. I had also learned that when u paint with tempera to make sure you get clean edges, and to make smooth gradations between different colors of paint that you used.
I had learned that if you choose to paint with water colors or if you choose to color with oil pastels , that they blend but they blend differently. Watercolors blend with water obviously but there are different types of blending for water colors. Here are the different ways they can blend : 1. Flat wash- is when you just paint a normal square of paint onto your paper. 2. Graded wash- is when you dip you brush after every time you paint into the water so it looks like the color is disappearing. 3. Super imposed- is when you put a flat wash down, but after it dries, you put a vertical but darker color of that flat wash over it. 4. Wet and wet- is when you put down plain water onto your paper but you take a different brush of color and then dip it into that water to make like a tie- dye effect , etc. Also I had learned they make smooth gradations. Next, we have the oil pastel painting and from that water and oil DO NOT MIX. I also learned that when you try to blend them that's it's kind of hard to do. Also that when u try to get smooth gradations in between colors that it is harder to get clean edges and smooth gradations.
I feel like I mastered chalk pastel because in first semester we didn't make still life's with chalk but I do feel like I had mastered the skill because as you can tell I have improved where I put my objects and what I actually see. I also think that from last semester that I actually improved on where I put my shadows and lights.
I feel like I couldn't really master this project because I had drew what colors I had actually seen but others had prettier colors than my project . .i also think that I didn't master it because some colors didn't blend well, and my edges weren't that clean. Also it wasn't kind of hard to not smear your paper with colors.
I have improved on how well i control color blending, and creativity. First of all i have improved on color blending because i have had the ability to blend colors smoothly , and take my time on making sure everything is into place. I have also lessened how to see how dark and lights come into play. Now i have also improved on creativity because i have always came up with new ideas and improved on the projects i have used with my creativity in class. I have always came up with new ideas and new solutions and ways to make my project unique and mine.
