My intro was this.
Artist: Joey Boyer
Medium: Water Colors
Canvas: A3 Paper
This art piece is an image of a plant in the forest. I chose these colors because they match the color of the plant itself and they look nice for nature. I chose to paint this because it shows how much we should appreciate nature and that matters because it supplies us with food and fruits.
The elements of art I used in this painting are color, shape and line. For color I had red for the raspberry, green for the leaves, blue for the flower hanging over the top of the plant and yellow for the spots on the raspberry. I have diagonal lines for the leaves and curved line for the stems. My shapes are circles for the raspberry and its spots, tall semicircles for the flower and strange shapes for my leaves.
First I had to think about what I wanted to paint. Next I sketched it on A3 paper. After that I softly erased the lines so it wouldn’t show over the watercolors. The final thing I did was paint over the sketch.
I chose to have no background because if I did, there would be no focus point. When the human eye sees a paper, then you look everywhere on the paper, but if you drew a dot in the middle, you would look directly at that. So since there is one item in the middle, that would be your focus point. At least, that’s what I think.
