Above is a project I had to do for my first semester of painting. This project was done with acrylic paint- which is challenging to paint with on your first try, but gets easier as you use it more and more. Anyways, the project had to do with the sense of light and dark and the progression from realism to imaginative and they had to connect in some way.
I enjoyed doing the second project with acrylic. The class had to take their own pictures, paint them in gray scale then choose a color scheme to glaze over the gray scale. It was fun, but also difficult since I had to redo a few things quite a few times.
