Mixed Media

Artists Communicate Through Their Work.
In this project, I was trying to convey the message "Be yourself". In the background, there are people struggling to find theirself while the man in the street is proud to be himself, even though he looks strange. 

Artists Take Risks
In this piece, I used 4 different medias. Magazine cutouts, colored pencils, printed cutouts, and water colors. All of these I rarely used beforehand. I enjoyed using all of them and am glad that all of it went together.

Sticky Situation

Artists Take Risks
During this project, I used acrylic paint which was a new medium for me. I tried my best, and used light strokes until the entirety of the page was covered. It didn't go as well as I imagined, but I thought it turned out okay for my first time.

Artists Solve Problems
I had difficulty using the paint with a larger brush, so I used different sizes to get into different places. I also had trouble using the paint at first, but extended practice and slow paced work ended up proving reliable.
