Up Close And Personal

1. Upclose and Personal was our theme. How did you develop your ideas for this project and why did you choose your subject?
To come up with ideas, I just thought about emotionally personal situations. thats how I came up with kissing. 
2. How did you demonstrate Emphasis in your work?
The pink lips are emphasized against the black background. 
3. What medium did you decide to use and why did you choose this medium over the others? Discuss how it enhances your piece.
I used colored pencils because I liked how easy it was to blend them. It added texture to my piece. 
We encourage risk taking in art. Risk taking can be as simple as trying a new technique or learning about a new medium to as complex as trying something totally new.
4.. Did you take any risks with this project? Explain.
I think my topic in general was a risk because its very personal and emotional. I don't think anyone else would have thought of it.

5. Of the 5 characteristics of great art (technique, concept, emotion, new, medium) which did you include in your art?
I used emotion obviously because kissing is very emotionally deep and sensual.
