I really enjoyed the assignments this quarter because I was able to play around and develop my skills in creating pictures out of simple shapes and colors. I have always enjoyed coloring. It’s something that I find very relaxing. I decided to use bright colors in all of pictures, because I think that using bright colors help make an image stand out more. I chose to color a sheet covered in flowers, a painting by Picasso, and an Indian woman. For the self portrait I took inspiration from a picture that I took last year on halloween. I used this photo as inspiration because halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. The basic shape assignment was the assignment I liked the best, because it forced me to draw something in  a new light. It allowed me to put my own spin on the drawing,  like the animal shape and valve assignment did as well.
