CFPA art 2
Artwork that I created as a 10th grader.
This is my impressionistic oil pastel piece of my front yard. I worked hard to create background and to add depth. This piece is one of my favorites of the year as the aesthetic outcome is pleasing to the viewers eyes.
This painting of a lion which is on the cover of my sketch book, that I made in the beginning of the year. I choose to paint that animal because lions have always been my favorite animal since I was little when I used to watch a lot of the National Geographic Channel. The painting was done with acrylic paint and it was easily achievable after I figured out the style that I would use to paint it.
This was the piece that I entered into the water art competition back in February. I worked on it for many hours to express the importance of water on different industries such as the fishing industry. My piece was created with oil pastels, because I felt that the aesthetic outcome would be better.
I choose to do a polar bear for print making because it is one of my favorite animals and there are easily one of the most beautiful. The background has an icy aesthetic to recreate the natural habitat that my animal is from. The texture of the polar bear can be seen with the dark sharp edges of the fur where the shadow is supposed to be.
This is my piece called "Puzzel Box" which is also the name of the ceramic design. I painted the puzzle pieces with under glaze to be like a play on words, before I glazed it. Creating and painting the ceramic box took a few hours as each puzzle piece required precise detail so that they would all fit in the space perfectly.
