Artist Statment

This quarter my art mostly focused on painting. I am more of a sketch artist than painting. I really wanted to improve my painting so this quarter I used water colors and paint for the ceiling tiles. My art work was more colorful than even before. The shapes and ideas I used were different to me because they looked more realistic than my usual art. I tried a new type of art which gave me room to grow. I definitely think with more practice I will get better at realistic art. I was not so proud of my self portrait. Using the white on black paper was challenging. The shading was harder to use and it just made the face look less realistic. I think next time I will stick to black on white paper. I really enjoyed the ceiling tile because it came out nice and you can see the effort I put into it.
