Line Drawing


I wanted to incorporate dark shadows and a slight version of abstract art. I accomplished that by just looking at the shape of the shadow instead of the whole picture itself. My painting is about Interesting markings and dramatic shadows. The most difficult challenge in this painting were the fingers. With the help of my teacher I figured out the size view placement of the fingers. My painting really works with the lips and the different values of the lips. I have learned the ways of size view placement. My mentor is Edvard Munch. Much uses his feeling to bring out the dramatic ways of his paintings. I liked Barwick's because she used a lot of value. I am happy about the contrast in my painting.

In this piece my goal was to bring out the lightness throughout the dark shadows. I wanted to show deep contrast with the light and the dark. I used the back light to bring out the shadows. The most difficult challenge was making the pumpkins look three dimensional. I met the challenge by blocking out the light and dark and then adding deeper images. I can squint my eyes and just look at the color. I used Edvard Munch because he uses his feeling into his paintings. I liked Hans picture because he really brought out the skull in his picture. If I had a do-over, I would pick a different angle to paint. My greatest feeling about my painting is the way the shadow drapes over the pumpkin.

Pass Time

I spend my time on the track practicing hurdling 

I spend my time in the summer jet skiing on the water
Either on a sit down or a stand up

I also spend my time on the beach in the summer

Most of my free time is spent on the soccer field.

Self Shadow Portrait

I'm excited for this self portrait. I love the dark shadows
and bright whites of the picture.

A little girl at a camp I went to was so obsessed
with me, she came into camp with this shirt on. 

Music is my main obsession, it has gotten
 me through many hard times. 

I'm a fruitaholic and pomegranates are my weakness.
