Drawing and painting 2016 Ruby Kraft

I have always been interested in color and the color theory, so to learn how to manipulate color was intriguing for me. It was confusing and challenging to try and manipulate the blue into two different hues, so I feel like I stepped out of my comfort zone for this project.
When starting the gif assignment, I had thought we would use a ball over a cloudy sky or sunset, which was similar to the final product. I soon moved to the space idea for the background, but we kept the 'ball'.

If I could give my own take on the gif project, I would have used oil pastels to make a sky/sunset view and show the silhouette of a bird taking flight off of a bough of a tree.

The silk painting project was the one I knew the least about and the one that taught me the most new material.
I'm most proud of my charcoal piece called 'Rhythm', because I think I put the materials I was given to use in the best way that I could have. Charcoal is my favorite medium, and I think I can use it the well enough to get a good final product.

The only area I hope to improve is in painting and especially my use of hue and value, and making successful gradations. My goal is to actually be proud of a painting I make in the second semester.
