We had our mid-semester review this week and had to lay out all the work we've done so far on the floor. I thought it was really fun to see everything I've learned in the last 8 weeks. I loved every minute spent with my instructor. She is such a great guide for getting me to understand a new project or material or concept.
A couple of closer-ups:
The little skeleton on the right is our most recent project. We had to create the fossilized skeleton of a mythological creature. First we had to cover the white paper completely with compressed charcoal (synthetic charcoal with pigment in it), and to get the image, we used our erasers to reductively create the image.
This was after the first night of work. You can see I hashed my skeletons together on the computer first.
And the final outcome! Something from the bat family for sure, but with no wings... hmmm...
