My summative took much longer to paint than any of my other containers because of all the attached circles. Since the circles were a different color, I had to use a small paintbrush and try to keep the edges as clean as possible. While I originally wanted to do a blueish color, after seeing several other I decided to do a light green + a turquoise.
Our new unit, cardboard revolves around the idea of using cardboard pieces to make boxes and shapes with negative space. I personally find this the hardest media I’ve worked with in art because I’ve never done it before. In the world of 3D art, I’m used to either using clay like materials, or carving sculptures. Cutting, folding and glueing is something I’ve never experimented with properly. So far I’ve created boxes using notches and tabs, and have begun making small shapes and glueing them together as an experiment.
