Blue, Bleu, Azul, Blau

Everything is blue!! We got this idea from the artist Portia Munson. She collected all items that are pink. Her collection remembles the difference between pink and blue and the time period. Our collection shows that our era is different. Half of these items on this table I have never seen before or would have new thought of. Portia's pink collection shows how girly things are and youth. All of her pink items are children's toys or things you would see in a child's room. It just shows how different we see everything.

My name is Sarah and I am a hoarder

I would classify myself as a hoarder. i keep stuff that is significant to me. Things that are memories to me. I don't throw away much because I believe I will use them later. Even though I can't. Andy Warhol did the same thing. In fact he collected over 600 boxes of stuff. They all had meaning to him. They are time capsules to him and to history.

Compare and Contrast

Here are my final drawings!! I have to say that the bike drawing was my favorite. I enjoy working with graphite pencil way more than colored pencil. The color pencils bring the picture to life and makes it more visual to look at, but the graphite pencil is just a nicer finish. Personally I find working with colored pencil so difficult. I never can get colors right. The lid on my candy drawing was really hard to get the color right. I love the graphite pencils. I love shading and I just enjoyed it more. 

Candy Jar Drawing

It's not finished yet but here it is!! This is the most difficult drawing I have done. We had to draw candy in a jar. The most difficult part of this drawing was defiantly drawing the jar. Trying to get the shape of it. We also had to draw the candy inside the jar. That was really hard. Every angle you looked at the candies form would change. We did this whole drawing in colored pencil. That was fun but I would make errors and want to erase but I couldn't. This was a fun drawing. I hope later we use the colored pencils again.  

Bike drawing

I enjoyed the bike drawing. This is my finished picture!! I had a difficult angle to work with but I think I handled it nicely. The easiest part for me was drawing the petal. That's where I started my drawing. The hardest part was the tire and gears. My drawing was at a complicated angle and it was weird to position it. The value brought my picture to life. Once I started shading you could tell what everything was. We did this whole drawing in pencil. I prefer working with pencil because I can erase my errors and I just think it's nicer to look at when it's done.
