To me, art is something that shows others my thoughts. I’d like to show my opinion in my art. When other people see my drawings and paintings, I want them to know I did it by just paying attention to the objects and style of the art. I draw a lot of things I like, and agree with. I very seldom will put something in my art I dislike. Art is just a pastime or hobby I enjoy.
As an artist.
Over time my art has become more of a mirror that reflects me. It shows more of my carefree spirit. It shows what I love. My art shows who I am.
After a second semester of art honors I have become more comfortable with my style. I know better now what subjects I enjoy showing, and what mediums I enjoy working with. In the future I plan to make all of my 3D art functional. I also want to work with thicker oil paints in the future, and work on building up texture on a canvas.
This year I made a miniature painting of a peach. The miniature had to have texture though, so I used molding past for the first time. I enjoyed using the molding paste because it was easy enough to work with that I didn’t get frustrated, but it still kept me on my toes. It gave me a really fun texture. I’m glad I used it because now I have a better understanding of how to use it, and I will have a medium to go back to when I am looking to build texture in the future.
