greenhouse concentration

Artist Statement-

This drawing is of greenhouses. I wanted to experiment by using a new technique of watercolor painting that I have never done before. The materials that I used were graphite, pen, and watercolor paint. I chose to do greenhouses as my concentration because I really like the pastel colors and look of all of the plants inside of the greenhouses. The element of art that I used was color to show perspective and to use realistic colors for the plants and flowers. The composition rule that I used was formal balance because all of the greenhouses are mostly in the center of the page. I wanted to do many different perspective and paintings of insides and outsides of greenhouses. This project relates to my life because I am very interested in studying the environment and plant life especially through art. If I could go back and change anything I would want to do a couple more watercolor paintings.

Artist Statement:

This art project is of a greenhouse in a garden. The materials I used were scratchboard and watercolor paint. I chose this design because I liked how the colors looked together and the interesting blend of materials, using the watercolor paint and scratchboard. My project evolved because I didn't really know 100% what I was going to do when I started and it just evolved along the way.The elements of art that I used were shape and color. The composition rule that I used was informal balance because nothing is directly in the center of the page. This art project relates to my life because I really like drawing and painting flowers and gardens. If I could change anything I would do another coat of the blue watercolor paint and add more colors in the background.
