Sticky Situation: Paint

For the "Sticky Situation" project using acrylic paint, I decided to depict the situation of making S'mores. For this project I decided to use a technique that I was more familiar with by using acrylic paint instead of water color. However, I have had very little experience with mixing colors and adding values with paints. Working on the wood piece for the background helped me learn the new technique of blending different values of colors to achieve the look I wanted for the background. For this section I believe I am at a level 2 where my outcome is somewhat predictable for my piece.
Some challenges that occurred when I was working on my piece were having to duplicate a color I had previously used in my piece, i would make different hues of the color and blend them to achieve different values within the piece. The placement of the graham crackers and marshmallows and other items used to make smores were not exactly placed as I had planned they were going to be, so I had to alter the rest of my piece overall. With this, I believe I am at a level 2 that I can solve problems with help as I did when I had trouble making certain colors for my piece.
While I was working I definitely asked my table members for feedback and advice about my piece. With advice about coloring and placement of items and adding certain details to my piece, I was able to achieve the look I was going for. With this, I believe I am at a level 3 where I work collaboratively.
Overall I enjoyed paintings and learning different techniques and experimenting with mixing colors and this project has definitely inspired me to do more paining outside of school.
