The fruit painting really helped me discover and experiment with acrylic painting and be feel the actual process, especially with the pallet knife. With that, I was able to be more loose with my final image and understand both styles.
The second was the reflection drawing which really helped me with my realistic self-portrait with drawing. I got to experiment with value on the face and notice that there is always a neutral value and that it is easy to draw a face if you just focus.
Lastly, my landscape watercolor really made me realize what I like most from this class. This is so far my favorite technique of art and soothes me and calms me instead of stressing me out. It is a very flowy kind of art that can have such a great turn out without so much effort being put into it. I feel that it is more mental than physical skill needed to accomplish it.
This class I really enjoyed and I have gotten to meet some great people. It has such a comfortable environment where I definitely learned from my peers new techniques that I couldn't have just learned from the teacher. We all collaborated and helped each other out so that we could reach our goals and I am very happy with how close we got.
