Title of Art Piece: Golden Red Daisy
Student/Artist’s Name: Leah Allan
School: Lathrop High School-FNSBSD
Artist Statement: This piece allowed me the opportunity to experiment with chalk pastel, a medium I had never worked with before. Through working with the chalk pastels, I discovered how fun it can be to get a little messy while creating a work of art. For this piece, I tried to pay close attention to the various shades of red and yellow throughout the flower. My aim was to make the colors bright, bold and rich while also interpreting the natural shades of color. I really enjoyed creating this flower piece because it reminded me of the season of spring that is just around the corner.
