This Project was an achievement for me as it was my first time painting and it included something from a mission in a game called First Time Together, and the boss of the mission was a Slime. The slime I guess represents me in a dream on a plane staring at the sky, which is supposed to be Surrealism right? Anyways, here's my reflection. Peace.
Describe your project
My project is pretty much just a small, purple slime (with one black string with a purple ball on its end sticking out of the top of the slime) staring up at the blue-sprayed clouds.
What knowledge did you already have about the project before you started?
I knew about how to take care of acrylic paint and painting materials, as well as what they’re made of and how best to use them in techniques.
What new skill did you want to learn coming into the project?
I wanted to learn about how exactly acrylic paint works. What I was looking for was some experimentation and experience to accompany the previous knowledge that i’d looked up.
Did you accomplish this goal?
How do you know you accomplished the goal? If you didn’t accomplish the goal, why do you think that is?
I know I accomplished this goal because I was able to experiment with different tones and shades and apply them on different plates. In my blog post i’ll show you what I came up with in the end, well before it all got swirled. Still looks pretty cool.
What other skill(s) did you learn along the way?
I learned about making different shades, and painting small areas. Making shades requires that you have space for making different variations and occasionally going over the variation line to refill certain shades. Painting small areas really depends on the look that is wished to be gained, which can be gained with different size brushes, and applying water to different areas.
What are you most proud of in this project?
I’m most proud of the painting in itself. The Slime could have came out better, but the blue painted sky, the blue and white mixed clouds that don’t look the same from each other, and the greenish-yellowish grass are beautiful to me. On top of that, I finished my entire project in one day, and was able to get my work done on time, which was truly a miracle for my schedule.
What would you do differently if you had to do the project over again?
I would have done it sooner.
