Observational drawing

Artist Statement:

The subject of this artwork is a paint pallet. To create this artwork I first started by outlining the shape of the painting pallet in sharpie and then I went into the center with gray sharpie to fill it in and then splatter painted over the top with watercolor paint. The materials I used were sharpie and watercolor. I chose to make this specific artwork because I liked the textures and colors created by the painting layed on top of the pallet.

The elements of art that I used were color and texture. The principals of design that I used were rhythm/ movement and pattern. The composition rules/ techniques that I used was rule of thirds.

My project evolved because I started out by doing a few different techniques on different pallets that I had drawn and then I chose the one that I liked the best. The meaning behind this artwork is to find the beauty in everything and just have fun with it. This project relates to my life because I love to paint and I really liked the colors that were created just by smearing the paint around on the pallet. If I could change anything about this artwork I would add more detail to the background.
