I feel that I was very able to master chalk pastels because it was simple to blend darker colors on top of lighter ones
I was definitely unable to master oil pastels because I could not get the gradations right and the sticks were too big to fill in the lines. I also added more oil pieces than I originally had
In this year, I believe I have improved myself as an artist through color use and knowledge and attitude. I realized that the main problem with my artwork was that I believed I wasn't good enough and I told myself other people could do better than I ever could. I now know that I'm as great as an artist as I am able to be and I will strive to push myself higher. As for colors and knowledge, I think I have a greater knowledge as to how to blend certain colors and much of that color to use when I'm blending so I've definitely gotten better with colors.
I have discovered that I am a much better artist because of the things I have learned throughout this class. I've been taught too much to say the least and it has definitely bettered my thinking skills and actually makes me think about the things I could acomplish in my future
