Art Two Final Portfolio
4. Two mini lessons that I think were most beneficial to the particular project were the watercolor techniques and the watercolor fruit drawings. These lessons helped me understand watercolor and the things I could do with it a lot better. I learned a lot that I didn't know before. Even though I ended up using acrylic paint for the project instead, I learned that you can use lots of different materials to get different affects from the paint. I would've never guessed that you could use salt and wrap with the paint. Some of the materials that we used to put an effect on the watercolor I used with acrylic paint too. I used wrap on the clouds in my sticky situation project but painted over them so you can't really see it. However, next time I work with watercolor, I'll definitely be able to add more to it with what I learned in the lessons.
5. My favorite material to work with were the prisma colors. I like the prisma colors because you can blend and get more vibrant colors then with regular colored pencils. You can layer them and make you drawing much more realistic. I also like how it requires you to pay attention and think about what you're going to do before you do it. If you don't think about what's gonna happen, you can easily mess up. One of the things I don't like is how little color choices there are. I wish that we had learned how to somehow use the colors we have to make more because I felt like I was very limited in my drawings color-wise. But regardless of that, I think that the prisma colors were the best material that we used to draw with.
