Colored observational

For this project we had to create a piece by observing an object. Then we had to make this object colorful. I chose to draw a toy pig using paint sticks. I sketched out a general outline of the pig, and then went in with random colors until I was satisfied with my base coat. I then went back in with darker colors to add contrast and highlight features. Once I was satisfied I continued to scratch out some areas of the pig. For the background I chose neutral colors because I didn't want to take away from the bright colors in the pig. I created random designs to add movement within my piece.
