IPad Value study

For our Third Art 1 project we were told to create a value drawing on an IPad app called Layers. We also created value drawings using oil pastels. Both drawing had the same concept, layer and blend, but they were very different. While using the IPads you are able to erase, undo, and lock layers. This means no smudging or overdoing your colors. With oil pastels it is harder to blend and it is easier to smear your artwork. Technology is very important in art.  It allows people to create art  without needing messy supplies, and it allows them to transport it much easier.

Contour Shoe Drawing

In Art 1 our second major project was contour shoe drawings. First we did blind drawings of our hands. My first drawings did not look like hands, but they slowly improved. Next we did shoes. Shoes are more complicated because many have complicated textures and patterns. Doing contour drawings has improved my drawing skills and it has helped with how neat my artwork is.
