Portfolio Vaughan Hazeldine Still Life Conflicting Medley, Ebony Pencil, 2012 Learning to control the ebony pencil to create shading and dimension brought my flat sketch to a more realistic representation of the scene in front of me. I strengthened my skills in proportionate drawing and am able to bring my art to life using the Five Principles of shading. self portrait Many Moods of Vaughan, Shading Pencils/ Ebony Pencil, 2013 Focusing on the placement of my features and mapping out the contour shapes before shading, eliminated the need to redraw any misshapen eyes or ears. The gridding process allowed me to sketch a rougher, less clean version and allowed me the option to go back and perfect the areas of need. Stemming Bliss, Acrylic Paint, 2013 Candy Painting Blow!, Acrylic, 2013 Right Through Me, (watered-down) Acrylic, 2013 In this project, I acquired the skill of brush control and learning techniques to hold and position the paint brushes for maximum finish. I was also taught to apply multiple coats for a cleaner finish that would create a more polished artwork. Monochromatic is using only one hue. I added measurements of black and white (to the hue) to create tints and shades of green. Monochromatic Viewfinder Painting The project was to create a "photo real" artwork of various candies. It took some time but my hand became accustomed to the steady, slow-paced effort of painting with acrylics. Painting is difficult with the many layers of paint it takes to create a realistic look. The task demanded me to add fine details to the piece to create the realism and drama of realistic items. I also learned that acrylic paint stains clothing! Mixed media consumes energy and time because of the multiple mediums used AKA mixed media. The obstacles to overcome throughout the project were my lack of speed in cutting and gluing. I realized that this specific style of art is more forgiving because the harmony of the different materials compliment each other. the most difficult section though, was the shadows added to create a layered effect when viewing the artwork. Plenty of Fish, Ink Monotypes, 2012 Ink was really difficult to work with because it dried quickly. I learned that ink can be used and manipulated to create artworks of variety. Using different pressures will take off various amounts of ink and when they are rolled through a machine, the ink will leave a certain shade. My entry in the 6 by 6 Exhibition was a detailed watercolor of a scenic landscape. The deep colors were what I imagined a bird would whitness when flying over the mountains early in the dawn. Rich farmlands of emerald and a rapid swiftly moving across the plains, the sun is just peaking over the distant foothills. I added bits of yellow and orange to the tips of the clouds, to create realism, as it does in the morning when i walk to school. The fields of roses and wildflowers blossom to create a blissful, serene artwork. I finished it off with a swirling brushes of robins egg blue for the welcoming sky and a touch of purple to resemble the retreating night. I learned to water down colors and use the water from my cup to create soft colors that resemble air and light. The original hues are to harsh and mixing the different gem tones, I used my personal colors to decorate the open landscape. As an artist, I enjoy watercolor, clay, and photography. The clay projects I have embarked on are created using a wheel or free hand, depending on what im making. I make a lot of Bird houses and small shells and cups. My favorite aesthetic is paper (wrapping paper, Tissue, or Card stock) and photography. Photography speaks to me because I learn something new everyday and whether it's technical or just experimenting, it's my deepest passion. When I'm working in class, my aesthetic is unique, as well as my sketching style because I leave space open and begin with the large, basic shapes. There is alot of white spaces and I do this to allow my audience to fill them in with their imaginations. I didn't have much knowledge and background in the art environment previous to this class because Elementary schools don't provide the same lessons and tools as higher level schools. I missed out on art in Middle School because I never got in, yet it never crossed my mind as an issue. I really enjoy the art room's environment and the ease of the class because Art should be free. I have a hectic, social life and charismatic lifestyle so I often convey happiness, even in some of my more serious artworks. I have also developed a stronger sense of my passions and talents as an artist, not in just a skill sense, but I understand who I am in the artistic world. I hope to soon establish myself in the art world and that art will permeate my life. I have chosen my still life to reflect upon and explain the specific elements that go into Still life, realistic, and emotional painting. What I liked about my finished product was the emotion and the unity of the random objects in the scene. Although these items were randomly chosen and placed, they formed one beautiful still life that conveyed the truth that opposites attract and very different things can coincide. I used ebony pencil and the delicate smearing tools provided to execute my piece. When we started the project, I was too lazy to move so I just stayed put and drew what was in front of me. Up until this point, I found my decision immature, yet now I realize that by doing so, I wasn't tempted to draw something that was too easy or familiar to me. I ended up satisfyed with the work I had completed and was content that I challenged myself. I was careful to not darken everything too much, and utilized the pencils by making everything light and darkening in order of how dark they were- Darkest to lightest. I challenge myself now and have every project thus far. Among my art, runs a common theme that states my purpose as an artist and that's please the viewer with an art, whether it leaves them asking questions or craving to know about me. I enjoy the process of art because I know that every project that crosses my path will be completed to my fullest potential and I'll grow with each step of the way. I like to cause reaction and create a feeling of awe. I do travel around, yet I like to think the feelings I experienced on the trips are what fuels my crave for making art, not the actual place. This is because beauty can lie under the surface of the place. What I feel in Brooklyn and the loud, flamboyant atmosphere may be similar to the emotions that I experience when I'm rafting down the rapids of Figi. The excitement is similar, however both places are complete opposites. If I ever got the chance, I would snatch any opportunity to photograph for my own company or work with NatGeo. The peace of photography and making artwork with the camera is unparalleled. My Own Art Clay Seed Pod My Clay Pod is pulling from multiple influences. Originally, I had the ideas to manipulate the clay into small leaf-like pieces and then add them to the pod. I was planning to have them get smaller in size as they descended the side of the pod. They would end about mid way. But after running into difficulties, I scratched the sketches and started using smaller parts and zoomed in areas of my sketches to redirect my thinking. The new idea was to have the whole pod be different from every angle as it was turned. Each part would morph inot the next and this created the illusion that it was infinite. My pod has ridges that become shallower and then flatten into like a "plateau" of smooth nothingness. The smooth area slopes into a ridged mountain-like addition to the pod. The subtractive nature of the large gashes and the peaks that are formed create a rough kind of contrast. They are balancing each other and the smooth side of my pod is countered by a rougher, "pitted" that appeared as if someone had taken small scoops out of a tub of ice cream. (There's absolutely no other way I could've described that.) I painted my pod browns and greens (neutrals) to keep the pod's appearance organic, yet there are some spots where I accented with a yellow or turquoise to make those special areas pop. My most favorite part of my seed pod is the honeycomb like addition I created as I neared the end of the building process because i felt it needed something more, but not too much. This I accented with a goldenrod inside with a turqouise outer shell which complimented each other because of the textures both inside and out. The World's Around You Clay [white] and Acrylic, 2013
