So these are my finished At Home projects I chose to do the Art-Assignment thing. For the first one I did the Invisible places one(or something like that I have been unable to find what it is actually called). I took a picture of a rigger and oar on the water before the quarantine situation where I was actually allowed to row, and then drew it in pen. Originally we were just supposed to take a picture of an "invisible place," but that was boring so I decided to draw it. I was going to draw it in colored pencils, but when I actually started it I figured that I'd better ink it because I was low on time and colored pencil would take too long. For my second piece I chose to do "Relative Stranger." It is a portrait of my childhood friend that lives in my neighborhood and goes to Maggie Walker, so we are still close friends, but the relative stranger part comes from me not being able to see him or hang out with him in person for a long time because of the quarantine. I painted him because I like painting things, and then for the background I wrote "queen" in gold sparkly acrylic paint because he is a queen. Below are some process pictures.
I kinda didn't want to use this photograph since it wasn't from my usual boat and my blurry finger in the top left corner and because I really wanted to get the shape of the boat in the picture rather than just the rigger, but it was the best one that I took when I went out on the water, and I can't go out to take a new one because our season has been "temporarily suspended" due to the pandemic of COVID-19. I am doing the Art Assignment thing again because the last ones I did both got scholastic awards, but also because I feel like I can use them also as portfolio pieces like the one that I have show cased above. I can't remember the specific name of the assignment nor can I find it again on the Arts Assignment website, but it had something to do with going to a place invisible to others, but visible to you and then document it. Being on the water in the manner that I usually do is not something many people experience, and many people don't even know what our sport is, so I figured I would use the beautiful landscape that I used to see everyday(before the quarantine). I also really wanted to draw something related to crew because it would branch two things I love to do. For my second piece I am either doing "Relative Stranger" or the destroying a piece of art work thing(again I cannot find the actually assignment's real name, but Julianne did it for her last home project) depending on time, because I am worried that I might not actually finish this piece with enough time to do the relative stranger one, but I made a little painting on Saturday that I wouldn't care to much if I destroyed and it would probably improve the content to destroy it so i will decide later.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
