Project 2: Color

  1. What did you learn? With this project, I learned about all the different colorways you can use. I learned how to use colors to create depth in my landscapes by using different shades and tints of the same color. I also learned how to create a landscape with simple shapes.
  2. What was easy? The easy part of this project was choosing a colorway for each landscape slide. Just by looking at the theme I instantly knew what colors I wanted to use.
  3. What was challenging? The challenging part of this project was again, putting all the elements together. I spent hours arranging the pieces of the landscape so they would convey the feeling of the theme. It was also a lot of experimenting with what worked and what didn’t.
  4. How could your submission be improved? My submission could be improved by adding some more things into some of the landscapes. As I look them over there is probably more I can add especially in the desert artboard.
  5. How could I improve the assignment for the next class? You could improve the assignment by making one of the artboards a “pick your own theme” kind of thing so that students have the opportunity to make a landscape that they might be interested in.
  6. How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios? I might apply the skills I learned to create very compelling and detailed landscapes maybe for a cartoon of some sort.
  7. How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you? A specific video I found on YouTube helped me a lot with making landscapes. in particular it helped me to understand depth of field better and how to create it using different shades of a color.
