These pieces were fairly fun to make. My favorite being the warm and cool colors piece. I went along with the watercolor theme to do this piece. It was watercolors on a 9X12 piece of watercolor paper. I chose this picture and based it off the song by Lana Del Rey “Shades of Cool.” I chose to make the word around her the warm colors and make her in cool colors (off the lyric, “My baby lives in shades of blue (cool)”) to make it seem like she can’t be bothered by anything.
These next pieces I did digitally. They were really fun little doodles that I applied the instructions on. The one I don’t think I like as much is the one where I used the cool and warm colors to add depth. I don’t think I really accomplished the desired effect as much as I would have like to, but I still like it.
This is the warm color, I have hard time to do it I forgot I can not change the paint after it dry, so I could not make look better, but i did like the results of this paint.
I chose red, orange and yellow to convey the idea of forest, the felling with that is sometime life is hard we are tire, annoying, whatever case it is to be sad, take a long way to go to find the light.
I manage better this paint, this is my cool color the opposite of my first paint, I want to give the feeling of peace, relaxing, calm, also I am learning how to use the colors and mixing them.
I did not know what to do I just start drawing and I came with this. This is my neutral colors I use different tone of gray, dark orange, dark blue and black.
this is my special effects paint, I use green and orange to give the illusion of piece of box is falling.
On the instructions I first read,”Digital or traditional,” then I read a part that said,”Use paints on paper,” after I did everything on photoshop. So that’s why all my work is digital. Just wanted to make that clear before I freaked anyone out. Don’t worry, you probably did everything right. This took a lot of time but I definitely learned more about photoshop. The owl is the neutral color assignment, the leaves is the depth, and the sunset water photo is the warm/cool assignment. I pretty much just messed around with effects and looked up some photoshop tutorial vids to help me along the way.
