Here is my final assignment for this part of Drawing 1, it has taken me a long time to get to this but finally I have come to do it! We were asked to do planning for this ‘final piece’ , I decided to experiment with mixed media as I wanted to include this in my final work. I thought that throughout my research of this section of Drawing One there was different styles of artists using mixed medias in their work therefore I thought I should incorporate this in my assignment.
Below is the first piece I did working up to the last one, I wanted to start off with a sketch and look into the tones and detail I can include, I then followed with a mixed media piece using a textured background as well as then adding pen to them to bring out the shading.
Here is a picture of my results for the first part of this assignment, I thought they turned out well. I picked to use the images of a house I had from an earlier holiday I went on. Due to COVID-19 I wasn’t able to get out and get local buildings therefore this was the next best thing. I wanted to try some mixed media into this piece therefore I decided to create a detailed background for my next practice piece and add the pen to show the different shading and detail in the piece. I do like the outcome and I used the same inspiration to create my final piece for this assignment.
Below are the different shots of my final piece, I went for a mixed media piece on an A2 piece which was one of the requirements in this assignment. I do think this piece is well and I wanted to include a building I had done work on in previous exercise’s as I liked sketching that building.
In this piece I wanted to show the colours I felt when I was there and taking the picture of the building I did the art on. I felt these colours were a good match and create a textured background for my piece, I then wanted to use a pen effect to do this scruffy type look to my image and create tones and detail throughout the piece. I like how the piece turned out and I think I did well in showing the shades and tone in the piece. The shading does show the different details throughout the work and I think I got the angles correct in the building.
All in all, I am happy with the outcome of this piece I think the tones I have done throughout the piece are good and give off a realistic look for it, I love the background and it gave off the look that I wanted exactly, I really am impressed with how the mixed media went and I’m looking forward to developing my skill on pieces like this in the future, if was to do this piece again I would pick to do several different piece and do a big piece of different buildings, I feel I work better on a smaller scale therefore feel that would be a better option for me. Futher more I am happy with this piece and I’m glad I took the time to do this, I am so happy I have managed to do good quality and took the time to do these pieces at such an unsure time!
