Time project

4. Artists take risks.

- try new things

- experiment

Did you try something that you weren’t sure about as part of this project?

Did you pick a material or technique that was new or different over something that was familiar?

I defiantly took a big risk the most with this project than any of my other project. I was very worried if it would turn out the way i hoped it would but thankfully it did. My experiment was to melt some crayons over a canvas with a tree bark over it it to show time of both melting and growing. I used a new technique with the way i would hold up the crayons with a ruler so that it wouldn't burn my fingers, the idea was one if my friends. I wasn't very sure how the crayons would come lined up but it came out very fine. 

6. Artists solve problems.

- try alternative solutions

- use mistakes as learning opportunities

How did you respond to challenges that occurred as you worked?

Did your work take an unexpected turn due to a mistake or did something happen that was unplanned?

A solution i could have tried out to make the project turn out better was to wait until the paint had melted and then melt some more because the colors would blend and turn out brown:( which was not what i wanted but i fixed it. The reason why i kept the background white abd made the tree bark plain brown was so that the melted crayons would stand out and the focus would be on them.

  1. the different thickness and drips of the crayons is so interesting. Really like how it looks when the crayons are covering the branches but you can still see some of the branch beneath.
