DSCN4112 (2)


MY final project was executed in a professional manner, I used a watercolor paper 18″ x 24″, making sure it is clear of smudges and with a clean border frame. I also, used the required materials handle-ling with care, effort and attention to detail.

My design applies basic elements and principles of composition. I used the entire picture plane, there is no negative space. I also, establish a visual flow and a focal point adhering to the rule of thirds. This design has shape, space, color, value, and texture.

The words for my design was Elegant, Geometric Figures, and Texture.  I used purple, because purple represents elegance, I also used circles, triangles, rectangles and squares as geometric figures. Finally for texture, I played with a different designs making sure is smooth and flat but, must important visual.

As for color I use one hue which was blue, I used tint  and shade in order to establish a monochromatic paint.




Exersice 3. Color Studies


The color wheel is a chart representing the relationships between colors. Based on a circle showing the colors of the spectrum originally fashioned by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666, the colour wheel he created serves many purposes today. Painters use it to identify colors to mix and designers use it to choose colors that go well together. The classic color wheel shows hues arranged in a circle, connected by lines or shapes. The colors include primary colors (red, yellow, and blue), secondary colors (orange, green, and violet), and tertiary colors (yellow green, blue green, blue violet, red violet, red orange, and yellow orange).Secondary colors are created by mixing primary colors. For example, mixing red and yellow creates orange; mixing yellow and blue creates green.

Project 7. Value Self-Portrait

DSCN4102 (2)

This project has been executed in a professional manner. I  cut it, glued it, and pasted it in a Bristol board with clean borders. I applied the paints with care, effort, and attention to detail, utilizing Black & white Acrylic paint. I use an 8×10 inch paper, were all the areas in the design were covered with a collage.  This portrait occupies at least 80% of the composition, making sure all the values match the original image. I used all nine (9) distinct values in the composition, establishing a broad value range.  The portrait breaks each value into flat planes and shows no intentional outlines. All shapes and values followed the original image, maintaining the facial proportions to create an illusion of depth.

Project 6. Texture


     This design has been craftsmanship in a professional matter, I used the proper drawing paper,  PITT pens and posted on a Bristol board. I think I used the right materials as I was requested, once again I used the entire picture plane adhering to the rule of thirds. I establish a focal point and a visual flow  I implied the elements of design as: line, shape, space and texture. I also included the principals of organization positive space, contrast, repetition and direction. Also, I used different shapes as circles, rectangles, hatching lines, visual texture and my design emotional content was graceful.

Project 5. Directional Dominance

project 5

      This design its been executed in a professional matter, I used a drawing paper “9×12” and posted on a bristol board 14×17. I used the appropriate paper and the PITT pens. My composition utilized the hole picture plane is dynamic with a visual flow and a focal point adhering to the rule of thirds. It has no subject matter it has lines with a strong directional dominance and conflicts. This design has movement, rhythm and a focal point.
