For this second quarter project, I decided to do a still life of flowers resting in a glass bottle. I don’t really have a message that I want my artwork to communicate. Since it’s just a still life of flowers in a bottle. However, one thing that I wanted to portray in my drawing was the way that I had to approach this project was that I had to do multiple rough sketches. This contradicts on how I usually do projects which is adding small details one by one on the original starting art piece. The materials that I used to when doing my project were graphite pencils, an eraser, a ruler, paper, and of course my still life objects. When I first started my rough sketches, which I had to do every class, I used light strokes my pencil. I didn’t focus on capturing every small detail in the beginning but instead tried to comprehend the basic shape outline of my still life, such as the glass bottle. With every rough sketch, I progressed on getting more detailed and detailed till I had to do my final draft of my sketch. When doing this project, I was inspired by O’Keeffe artworks since my still life object was a flower. One thing that I noticed in her pieces was how she shaded her flowers, which I tried to implement in my own artwork. Honestly, I don’t think it worked out but I’m still proud of trying. If there was something that I would like to change. I would’ve liked to add more flowers to my final piece or proper shading. In conclusion, from this project, I learned about looking at objects at different angles and being consistent in my work.
