Getting Used to the Water- Summer Assignment #3

For this assignment I chose to use the prompt "Bathroom/Kitchen Counter."  I placed a bunch of jewelry on my bathroom faucet and painted it on a 9"x12" piece of paper in water color and pen.  I used the pen to outline the objects in a sort of "messy" way.  I tried to make this piece look like a professional kind of sloppy (if that can make any sense).  I'm not sure if I pulled it off all of the way with this piece, but I'm sure if I practiced more with the idea that I could do some cool pieces with the concept.  One thing I learned by doing this piece is that water will make pen ink run.  It should have been obvious earlier, but I wasn't thinking that far ahead when I was drawing the outlines.

Summer Assignment #2 and A Reminder of Why I Hate Pencil

The dimensions are 9x12 and the medium I used was pencil.  I'm glad I did this in pencil because it gave me an early reminder to never use pencil again.  I definitely am not a pencil artist.  I chose to do the assignment where you draw yourself in distortion and in pencil.  This gave me the idea to draw a close up of a plate and spoon that is rested on a glass, and then draw myself on the spoon.  The best part about this piece is that the crumbs on the plate were left from a piece of cake that I ate.
