During this process I faced, very little, difficulties. I responded to challenges while working by either going to the teacher and asking her what ways I could fix a mistake I had made or going to one of my peers and asking their opinion on my work.
My artwork did take an unexpected turn and I am okay with that turn because, it made my artwork look better than I thought it would. Something that happened that was not planned included me painting a bow on the gold side of the pumpkin. In my drawing and during he planning process I had no intention on painting a bow. It is not shown in the picture of the final image but I also added two bows on each side at the top of the pumpkin. I thought this would give it more of a pop and that was also unplanned.
I did learn through my art experience. I learned that with this experience I can plan out a entire work of art and I may still never know exactly how the final piece is going to come out. I did plan out my entire piece and it looked one way on paper but when I physically did the art piece it did not turn the same as it looked on paper but, like I said before I am satisfied with the way it came out.
I think artwork should describe the artist and in this piece I used ideas such as, items that are shiny , colors that seem dark and unemotional and colors that make you see the brighter side of things. I wanted there to be two side of an emotion on this piece. The side of the pumpkin with the gold on the back gives off a glamorous look and to some that is all they see. The side with the blue background was suppose to represent more of a gloomy and dark image.
I made this art piece more original. I wanted their to be one canvas where it could represent more than one thing. One side of the pumpkin was to represent the glamour side of things and when people everything is okay. The other side of the pumpkin was to represent more of a side image when people become gloomy and upset they may not show it so often.
My ideas happened intentionally. I wanted my pumpkin to represent everything that it came out standing for. As I was doing the project I found myself adding things and painting new things in due to new ideas. I can say that the new ideas went with the flow but the representation was intentional.
I stepped back and analyzed my artwork many time during this process because, I was never sure if it looked how I wanted it to. The times that I did step back and analyze my artwork I found myself adding new items and painting on new ideas to the piece.
Reflecting on my artwork helped my artwork process because, I got to get a better look at what I was missing. I think when I added the two bows to the top of the art piece it gave my work more of a pop. If I had not reflected on it before finishing I think it would have just been another regular pumpkin.
What I discovered about my artwork and myself during this moment was that I can be very indecisive and my artwork could show that. Being that it is a two sided pumpkin with each side representing two different things I think it shows that I can be indecisive. One side represent glamour and the other represents more of a dark side. My artwork can say that maybe this artist doesn't whether or not they want to be on the glamourous side or in a gloomy state of mind.
