Pictures of New York City - Taken over March break, 2014
Photos are taken by me!
Media Exploration Day 22 - Create a 2 colour wash
I decided to use orange and blue because they are my favourite complimentry colours!
Media Exploration Day 20 - Cover a page with white things
I have a box of receipts, clothing tags and candy wrappers and always use them for crafting. I decided to use them here as well!
Media Exploration Day 19 - Document a morning
I used makeup, seedless raspberry jam, nutella, cranberry juice and shampoo to make a self portrait of me and what I did this morning.
Media Exploration Day 18 - Document a trip, paint a wash over it
I decided to document my March break trip to New York City for this page. I used receipts, buisness cards, candry wrappers, and other things to show where and what I did. I chose the colour green for the wash, because it s the colour of American money. The trip was a lot of fun, but I would’ve definately had liked to hae more time there!
Media Exploration Day 17 - Find a simple object and cover the page with simple contour drawings of it
I decided to contour an old mascara tube. It looked very bland so I decided to watercolour it, which made the pen bleed.
Media Exploration Day 16 - Scribble on a page with a pencil; blend with a paper towel to create a value
I decided to create many values side by side with colour inbetween them to recreate a city scape. I like looking at photos of cities with cars zooming and looking like blurs, so I recreated it minimalistically.
Media Exploration Day 14 - Find a leaf outside + Represent the leaf in some way on a page
I used stamps and paint to make it look like it had grass and dirt stains, and added the paper flowers for depth. The leaf comes from my science teacher’s plant in the window!
Media Exploration Day 13 - Create a negative space painting using a wash
I found a photo of a café in Paris and decided to use that for my negative space. Instead of the background being the café, I wanted to make it the night sky.
