Artist Statement - Oil Painting

This is my oil painting of a black object and a ball. My goal in this artwork is portray the light and she shape of these objects by observing carefully and mixing different colors. In order to accomplish my goals, i spend a whole class period in experiment my palettes and marks out the area of distinct colors in the drawing. The most difficult part, in my perspective, is the process of painting. Since this is my first time drawing in oil, i have some trouble in maintaining the same texture of color as well as    keeping the sharp edge of color. It took me about four class period to finish up. Still, i think my drawing looks a bit sloppy, but it is a good try.

Blog - video

During the class period, Mr. Schick shows us a video about the Declaration of Independence. There is a number of celebrities that praise the quality and the effect of the DoI in the video. Me plus a few classmates were falling asleep at the end of the video, since the room is SO SO dark. At the end of the class, Mr. Schick want us to rewrite the DoI based on the defect of the US government right now. Though sounds hard, I feel like it will be fun. Let see tomorrow.

Artist Statement - Artist Page (Wayne Thiebaud)

This is a painting called “A caged pie” by Wayne Thiebaud. I was attracted by this work at first glance for its simpleness of composition and variety of color. Like most of his works, Wayne’s ability of portraying color vividly is always a highlight that appealed to the audience. In my enlargement of a part of the original painting, i mainly focus on the depiction of color by mixing oil pastel with different color. It took me a while to experiment but the process is very delightful. In general, i feel very good about my paint and hope you like it! 

Artist Statement - Item Drawing

This is my drawing of the following items. My goal is to portray the object in good shape and color. However, in my opinion, i did not fully achieve my goal. Thought i experiment color by mixing different pastel, the color i had on the painting is kind of different than the original object. The color of the shadow is also a bit off. If i can do this again, i will definitely do more work about the color and try to make the drawing as realistic is i can.

Tweet - Photography drawing

          My drawing of plane is here! It took me SO long to finish up and i think the planes looks good in general. It is kind of hard to drawing the plane from photograph since everything is flat instead of in 3D. Hope you like it and have a grt day!

Artist statement - Carry out box drawing

Above is my carry out box drawing. It took me about 5 class to finish. I think this is one of my best work among all the drawing. My primary goal is to depict the shape and the shadow of the box as realistic as possible, as well as make the chopsticks lead the viewers into the box. I accomplish my goal by spending time observe the object carefully and trying different item placement for best shadow. The working process was fairly smooth since we had done multiple drawing of shadow and shape. From this drawing i strengthen my skill in using different value of shadows.
