First Peice In AP Art

Gesso-ing my board


So our very first assignment this year was a gesso and charcoal drawing or painting or whatever you want to call it. I chose to do a self portrait of myself at a young age. My first reaction to this project was, man this is going to suck sooo bad; I absolutely hated it and wanted to throw it out. this project discouraged me to no end and  I felt like I would never be able to even half way master this technique. But I refused to give up. It wasn't until I began the hair that I felt like t was going to actually come together. This was one of my largest pieces but in the end I feel like it will be a strong piece to put in my breadth since it was such anew skill for me. I learned a lot from this project and plan on using this technique more in the future. this project taught me to be more open minded to new mediums and techniques.
