Week 6 - Art

Title: Thinking Back a Few Years
Size: 11 by 8 and 1/2 inches
This drawing portrays a bit of what my old house was like. I haven't lived there in... What, 6, 7 years now? Weird. This piece tries to capture a bit of what I remember about living there.

My first weekly drawing with color!

This one I just wanted to try and show what I remember (You can read my prewriting here), so I made the lines a bit rounder, more carefree, and not as exact and perfect as I would otherwise try to capture. Memories (at least mine), are never exact, so I tried to play with reality a bit in this piece. Then I added some crayon for flavor. I love working in crayon. For this piece I was just filling in a few shapes with color, but seriously guys, crayons are fantastic. Also, the quick, textured strokes of color add another dimension of childishness for me. I rather like the way this all came together. I was a bit unsure about the style, but I think it turned out fine. :)

  1. How fun! I think you captured Trenton well. The sketchy color gives it a feel of being a distant memory and the shapes all give it the busy feel a farm has. Nice!
