Student/Artist’s Name: Lovina Steve
Artist Statement: When I first saw this picture, I was pretty intimidated by how the girl was looking at the camera. I’m not good with faces, but I try my best to make it look realistic and perfect. I liked how the dress looked and the way it turned out at the end. I thought the dress was going to be hard to do because of the arm but it turned out okay. It was easy at first but then it started to get complicated, but in the end, it turned out better than I thought. The materials that we had to use were three shadings of paper and glue. I never worked with them ever since my sixth grade year. To me this artwork gives me strength to do my best and inspires me to keep going.
Artist Statement: I was inspired to make this painting after looking at Vincent van Gogh’s sunflowers. I used watercolor paint and since we had just learned about complimentary colors, I used purple and yellow colors so they would pop. At the time it was November and I wanted everything bright.
Artist Statement: I was inspired to make this artwork because I like how the colors fit in with the bird. For this artwork, I used watercolor paint, a paintbrush, and a cup of water. I freehanded this painting by looking at the image and using my insights to paint the bird. This artwork doesn’t really mean anything to me, but the colors of my artwork make me feel as if I’m in my own world.
Artist Statement: As an art class assignment, I was to paint this little part of my hometown. For my first time painting a landscape, I think I did pretty well. I used different types of brushes to get different lining and shading. My favorite part about this painting is the grass because it reminds me of fall. My inspiration for this painting is that I never thought I’d learn to paint.
