Restraints/Medium: -Acrylic paint -Paint brushes -06 x 06 inch canvas -Blend: mixing colors; creating a gradient when painting; -color wheel -color study I learned about Dry Brushing which is when you applying paint with a dry brush. By doing this technique you create strong strokes, though since you are not applying water to your paint the edges will be uneven. I also learned about a wash. A was is when you water down the paint, which can act similar to watercolor creating a translucent layer. Stippling uses the tip of a dry brush creating tiny dots which is mainly done to create texture. Splattering is another method that is used to create texture. To splatter use a wet brush and flick or splatter paint. Dabbing, using the corner of a sponge to dap on accents of color. Another textural technique that helps define your paintings to a specific style. Palette Knife technique is mainly used with oil's because oil's are thick and pasty. When used with acrylic it is mainly done to add texture or a unique style to their art piece. The last technique I learned was called detailing which is when you use a fine brush that helps you work out the details in a painting. The list below are all the things I learned when creating this art piece: -How to work as a class to create a famous painting; -How to match colors used on canvases with partners to create a final product that looks good; -How to make a realistic painting; -How to impersonate a famous artists style; -How to use blend, dry brush, wash, stippling, splattering, dabbing, palette knife, or detailing into the art piece;
The Elements of Art: - Line: Has several different components one is quality. Quality is the width or appearance of any line (thickness of the line). Another component of line is type. Type is the variety of directions and shapes that a line may have (vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines). -Color: reflects or absorbs light. Color as well has different components to it, one is hue. Hue is the actual name for color, and is a little more fancy way of saying color. Value is the lightness or darkness of a color (hue). Intensity is the brightness of a color. -Shape: is two dimensional and made up of geometric shapes. -Form: is three dimensional and are solid figures. -Value: is the range of light to dark. Tinting is part of value, when you tint you are adding white to a color. Shading is also a part of value, and it is when you add black to a color. Last of all Tone is a part of value, and that is when you add gray to a color. -Texture: is how something looks or feels, an example is smoothness, bumpy layers, woven, or soft. -Space: is the areas around, between, or within artwork. Positive space of artwork would be the actual object being drawn or shown. Negative is the opposite, the area around the object drawn or shown.
