The title of this post may be hinting at what is to come. This is my final Learning Project post. As the title, and legendary Rick Astley says, I will never give up water color painting. In order to move forward with my water color journey, let’s look back on how we got this far!
This is the final progression post on my Learning Project. This means that I will be making one more post that summarizes my experience with the variety of sources that I have used over this learning experience. It is slightly sad to say that this is the end of my Learning Project however, this is definitely not the end of my Learning Journey.
This week I decided to take on the challenge of painting Boba Fett with water color. The image I used pushed me a bit further because it encouraged me to be a little more messy than usual!
One thing I have always loved to do is Photography. I love going on an adventure with my camera and capturing things and moments that are incredible. I decided for this weeks painting, I would create a water colour recreation of a photograph I have taken.
In my previous blogs, I have stated how I am slowly starting to understand my preferred way of learning. The methods I notice that I am excelling in is through looking at an image and recreating it. I have also claimed that following tutorials via video or step-by-step result in work that I am definitely not pleased with. This week I decided to give a video tutorial one last shot before I fully decide that learning through videos is not my preferred method.
This week, I decided to approach my project through the use of Google Images. I simply made a google search and found an image I wanted to recreate. The difference about the piece I did today vs the pieces I have been doing so far is that I copied an image online that was not originally created through the use of Water Color.
If you are easily entertained by puns, this blog post will definitely amoose you! This week I painted a cow, just as I had promised.
I am now coming back from the week off of school, and decided to tackle quite a challenge, animals.
Last week on my Learning Project adventure, I attempted to focus on shadows. This week, I am building off of this concept through the use of lighting. “But Sarah, these are the same things” you may be saying to yourself, and although there are aspects of shadows in lighting, there is also aspects of light and light source. Secondly, I felt slightly defeated last week after my Shadows attempt, and decided this would allow me some redemption.
This week for my Learning Project with Watercolour art, I decided to tackle shadowing. Keep reading to see how disastrous this week turned out…
