I chose to take Intro to Art because it seemed interesting and I have always had an interest for drawing. I was expecting to learn how to draw my own face well.

Edges and Contours
Positive and Negative
Relationships and Proportion
Light and Shadows

I learn most from the relationships and proportions drawing stragedy. My art looked so much more realistic once I used proportions.

From my first to my last shading piece with charcoal I improved greatly. The first shading of my hand is very dark and I have a very dark outline around my fingers. In the second piece I did really well on not outlining my piece and I used my shadows well and put darkness only where there was supposed to be. In my third piece I have darkness only where there is darkness and didn't outline any of my features.
Chiaroscuro is the contrast of light and dark to give the illusion of space. I think I used chiaroscuro very well in this piece because you can tell what direction the light source is coming from. I shaded the right side of my face very well and left the left side lighter, but i could have made my left side a little bit lighter.
My first drawing wasn't very good and I definitely improved because I stopped using stereotypical symbols. I thought I shaded my face very well in this second piece but the left side of my face could have been lighter and my eyes are seemed too outlined. In my third piece I think I did a very good job on my eye and nose.
I wish i could of had more time to finish my self portrait because I rushed to finish it on the last day and so I quickly added some charcoal to the left side of my face and I was unable to shade it correctly and make it lighter.
I felt like I improved greatly on my technical skills because in my first charcoal drawing my charcoal smudged a lot so that is why it was so dark. In this piece I controlled it much better and liked my result
My attitude changed about my artistic abilities when I made this because it was very easy to me and I thought it turned out really nice. Some people around me had trouble with this and the fact that I could do it so easily made me feel good.
