I Create Original Art
I used my own unique ideas in this piece of artwork mainly by doing stippling with chalk pastel color pencils. This was unique because usually when an individual does a portrait of someone else, they will either shade it or color it. But in my piece of artwork, I did stippling that made the portrait look very different than the original photo I took (left). My source of inspiration was my friend, Hannah Bush. I took this photo of her holding up a peace sign with her fingers and then decided I would draw this. However, as I started to draw, I realized that I wanted to focus on her clothing, especially the bright color of her sweater. This is when I decided that I would not draw a face which would ultimately emphasize the clothing and the bright pink. Overall, I enjoyed working in this project and I am very happy with the way it came out.
