Project Description

Here is your chance to work with different mediums! This class is meant to be taken using at least one translucent medium and one opaque medium. Try your best to use the supplies you have to complete the following activities: 

Please upload you practice rounds as well as your final project. 

DELIVERABLE

Upload these assignments in the following order. You don't need to upload them all at once. A picture or scanned image of your paintings will do.

Project Description

Paint two versions of the same drawing! The frist one will be in a translucent medium (preferably watercolors) and the second version will be in an opaque medium (gouache or acrylics will do)

I strongly recommend doing the warm up activities before creating your final project, going through the process is half the fun!
