Even if the final images aren't that interesting, I give myself an "A" for a valuable learning experience. I could really go on and on with these. I could go bigger. I want to go bigger. I wish I had more time, but I have to resolve things for a grade. This has been the hardest part about working on an art degree. I want to do more time-consuming projects. Everything I do for school always feels like practice for the real thing.
I initially planned for this to be neutral regarding color, but just wasn't feeling it. I'll try another neutral-colored piece next portfolio. I've been trying to limit my color palette, but it's proven to be a more difficult challenge than I thought it would be. I want to be able to use marks without color to create visual interest. When I can do that successfully, I believe my work will be much stronger overall.
