Class 1: Dots

As usual, my first class wasn't my best effort. The project was to trace circles onto our paper and then fill them in using different styles and techniques.

For the first one I decided to do a dark to light background, and then contrast light to dark circles. I hated the background, it was so splotchy, but I kind of liked the overall effect.

I did another one really fast in class because I didn't want to critique my blotchy background. But after I got home I could see it was too pale, and I did it so quickly it was sloppy.

I did this last one the next night. I wanted to try to use some shading and see if I could give them some real depth. I also wanted to get more vivid colors. I still like the splotchy one best.
