    I think Tension is the most interesting and successful design in communicating the Principle of Art. In the tension piece, there are many jagged lines which are placed close together, such as the outline of the leaves placed close to the edge of the leaf. The piece is haphazard, lacking any sort of soothing rhythm or calmness to it, creating a very tense, edgy feel. The piece creates the feeling of stress when observed, and is overall conveys the idea of tension very well.

    Final Still Life With Reflection
    {IMG_6370.jpg} Still Life
    1. Look at the famous artist’s work that we discussed in class (the laminated sheets). Compare your marks to the marks created by Henry Moore, Vincent van Gogh and Giorgio Morandi. Which of the three artists’ marks, are the most similar to yours? Explain why and exactly where you used these marks:
    In Vincent van Gogh’s drawing of the woman at the table, he uses long, curved marks to show the roundness in the woman’s back. I used similar marks to express the roundness of the watering can, while going with the direction of the object. Also, along the woman’s back is a white line of highlights that is vertical but the marks are going horizontally. I used these types of marks in the legs of the chair. Other marks that are similar are the marks of Giorgio Morandi in Large Still Life with Coffeepot with the effective use of cross hatching, which I tried to use in to create darker values on the rocking chair.
    2. Look at your work (all in the portfolio) and progress over time. What drawing(s) make you the most proud? Please explain:
    The drawings that I am most proud of are the hand drawings and the charcoal drawings. I feel that these both are realistic and were good attempts at expressing what I saw. I know that especially in the charcoal drawing, a lot of effort was put in to have a good variety of marks. Also in the still life drawing, I used the charcoal to add dimension.
    3. What are three important things you have learned? Please explain why they are important.
    Three important things I’ve learned are drawing what I see and not what I know, using different shades of gray and black to add dimension, and using different marks to express the shades and shape of something. When I started drawing, I was drawing what I knew. For example, the shoe laces on the shoes- I drew them like they would be placed in a commercial, perfectly round. However, as I went on, I changed it so they were what I saw instead of what I knew. This made it look more realistic, and using this will make future drawings more realistic. Obviously, using different shades of gray and black will help my drawings look three dimensional. If I used just on solid shade of black on the leg of the chair, it would look flat, and you wouldn’t be able to tell that it was round and had shadows and highlights. And finally, using different marks to express the shades and shape of something is important because it also adds more dimension to my drawing, and keeps it interesting. Different methods have different advantages of expressing darks and lights. These different lessons will help my drawings look more realistic in the future.
