Stencil Project

For this project I really liked it. I liked doing something other than pencil value. The things that I didn't like about it was that I messed up my spray paint so it dripped on the other colors which made me have to paint my background again. Then for my final product there was some spray that went on the middle of it that I didn't like. I liked the spray painting part of the project though, it was cool doing something different from drawing. I liked how my final looked but I wish I picked different colors because I think I would have liked it with brighter colors. Other than the things about my final that I didn't like I really liked my the overall idea of the project and I thought everyone's turned out good.

Value Unit

     When we started this unit I found it very hard to use the pencils to shade in value; I had trouble with my lines showing and I couldn't blend. When we did the oil pastel I found it easier to blend. I really enjoyed the oil pastels, I liked how mine turned out in the end. I like how easy the iPads were to use, it was just I didnt like the end product. It seemed more of a fake and computer look to it, rather than a realistic shading that you get with the pencil and sometimes with the pastels. With this unit I learned that to make it look realistic, you have to shade with the lines of the shape; before this my shading was just filling in the lines with shading. I can see how technology is very useful in art and makes things easier, but I like the more realistic feel from other medians.
