Today I focused on different techniques of blending oil pastels (to the left). On the right is what I plan to have the final piece look like. When making the piece on the right, I had a new idea as to how I would create the final piece. Instead of drawing everything directly onto the canvas like I had originally planed, I would cut out each individual piece and glue them onto the final canvas. By doing this practice I can refine each piece and add a background to the original canvas without worrying where I was going to put what, Hopefully everything goes well and I can complete the project by the due date.
To me, the art is like an inexperienced man’s impressionist painting. That being said, “Day 2” looks a lot more uniform than “Day 1”, despite using the same materials. Blending is probably the biggest practice in both of my pieces. The primary medium I used to create this piece was soft pastels. Blending was the most important technique I used as it can make colors seem more natural and not look like they were slapped onto the canvas. (Despite that being exactly how I made the piece). A big inspiration to my art pieces was Claude Monet along with previous students. I’m not exactly trying to make an audience feel anything that they won’t feel on their own as my artwork was primarily about copying and modifying a photograph. The primary goal was to copy a photograph as accurately as possible. As I continued however, I learned that copying is a lot harder than it seemed so I modified the my copy to have a unique look to it. In the end, the goal was just to mess around with soft pastels and see what I could make with them. I'm not so happy about “Day 1” but I’m glad to see that “Day 2” was such an improvement especially with having to use a new canvas. Despite being messy, I really enjoy working with soft pastels and the interesting colors you can make with them. I will no doubt use them in a future project.
