In my first picture of something in motion, I did not leave enough space in front of the dog to create the illusion of her running in the backyard, whereas in motion 2, you can see the black car moving forward, and the smaller cars on the left coming toward the viewer to create the illusion of movement.
In my first portrait, you can see the hidden edge of the pipe going through Chinaza's head, whereas in the second photo, Samia's left eye (from the viewers perspective) is on the top left rule of thirds.
In Landscape 1 you can see the trees on the left cut into the top third of the photograph, whereas in Landscape 2, you can see the trees are aligned in the center of the picture.
The title of my art piece is "A Walk Through Nature." To create my nature piece, I used watercolor colored pencils to create the image of a pathway through a landscape of trees, grass, and flowers. The main inspiration for my art was gardens you can walk through on a warm summer day. Originally, my main goal was to make the river stand out, but I have noticed the contrast of the light green of the leaves against the dull green of the grass, makes the tree stand out more.
To create my art piece, I used a straw to blow ink around on a small piece of paper. After the ink dried, I turned the paper in different directions to find what I wanted to make. I decided I wanted to make a tree, so I took some watercolor colored pencils and I drew leaves at the end of branches, I also added some flowers. When I was satisfied with the tree, I mixed the colors pink, blue, and purple to create a sunrise, and I mixed the colors blue, yellow, and green to make the grass. When I finished with the colored pencils, I used a small paintbrush and went over the colors with water so they would blend together. My goal for this artwork was to create something related to nature. One thing I learned while doing this project is one piece of art can be turned into another.
I created my artwork by by gluing down small, cut up pieces of paper onto a large piece of watercolor paper, adding tape, charcoal, pencil, and ink onto then the page then peeling the tape off.The goal of my art piece was to be messy and dark in some places, but also clean and organized in other places. Something I learned in this art piece was art doesn’t always have to be perfect or put together a certain way.
