Painting started off as a day of critique of our three oil paintings of the black and white still life and the master paintings. People were pretty impressed with the paintings, using a particular manner of painting as well as replicating the Degas's piece. Now our next project is a colored still life, used of vibrant colors combination of fabrics and everyday outfits. I hoping that it will be similar to the color pastel pieces that I produced in Drawing I.
So the courses that I'm attending to sign up for is Illustration I, Audio & Film Media, Graphic Design I, Introduction of Creative Writing and English Composition 2
So I finally had my Art History Midterm on Wednesday and what did I think? Well, I thought I got ripped off. I sent many, many hours and interruption to study the 156 flash cards. And in the end, it was a page long of ten questions and an critique essay. I barely reference the vocabulary worlds, a few iconic art pieces and the Last Supper interpretations. I thought there would be challenged a little more than having a art history quiz.
Thursday, I finally got to make fresh powdered to liquid to solid plaster block. The best analogy that my partner and I came up with plaster was clam chowder, cream soup and vanilla milk shake. But do not let the appearance fool you because when you stir your hand in the plaster, it feels like white fluid with hidden cold pieces of mud or clay. Not the best sensation of feel at the bottom of the bucket. It even takes two buckets to fill in one box, pretty ridiculous. I'll take a picture of the finally result of the solid plaster outside the box on Sunday.
