2016-2017 Art Portfolio Anna-Marie O'Donnell

I took Intro to Art because I've always enjoyed art, and I wanted to learn more about art itself. I was expecting to learn new techniques of drawing, and i have.

Edges and Contour Drawing Technique
Negative and Positive Spaces Strategy
Lights and Shadows Strategy
Relationships and Proportions Strategy
I have improved in the contour strategy the most because I used to not draw any of the little bumps and rivets.
My most improved area is realism and getting all of the small details that should be there.

Chiaroscuro is the contrast between light and dark to give the illusion of space. A good example of this is my nose and lips on my fragmented self-portrait above.

The first picture is the first time I had attempted a self-portrait, and the last picture is the most recent one that I have done. I improved a lot in my self-portraits. The most improvements are the nose and eyes. I also improved on my proppotions.
If I could redo one piece, I'd want to redo this trial self-portrait. I kept messing up on the nose, and the charcoal set into the paper so I wasn't able to take it out and redo the shadow. If I redid this today, it could turn out a lot better and more accurate because I have also learned a lot since then.
My two most improved areas are color use and my drawing ability. I can draw more realistically and proportionally correct. I also know about which colors should and should not be next to each other or be mixed.
