This is my favorite project we’ve had in this class!! I really liked messing around with all the stuff I chose to use. I used soy sauce, coffee, pomegranate juice, 2 different kinds of mio drink, frosting and breath strips. I found that if I left the materials out to dry that as the water evaporated the substances became more pigmented and easier to work with. I only started over once, and I went about the second time very strategically with layers. I used illustration board since all of my materials were wet and I didnt want to disrupt the surface of the paper. The background looks a little bit wonky, but I really liked that I decided to include some of Luke’s plants that are sitting all around the studio. I think I did a pretty good job with this project and it was really exciting to see what everyone else did for theirs.
Speaking of alternative materials….here’s some sketchbook pages of mine..
