2011 uncontrolled pen drawing
I didn't mind doing this one. It wasn't very hard but that's good for the first project. I had a problem with figuring out what to put on it. I couldn't come up with anything I liked and then I just ended up putting a big flower on it and then had nothing else to add. Thats why there's so much white background and an abnormally large flower in the middle. But it was a good project to warm us up to art.

2011 controlled sharpie drawing
This one was one of my more favorite ones. I like using the sharpie pens to draw with instead of pencil or pens. It gave me a challenge and I like the way this one turned out. From far away, it really looks how I wanted it too.

2012 acryllic painting
This one was like the painting I used to do when I was little. It was just with regular paint and we could do whatever we wanted. Again, I had a hard time figuring out what to do and after being frustrated that I couldnt, I just kind of picked something and did it. And thats how I got this dinosaur with the colors of the rainbow. I just went with it and made it up as I went.

2011 watercolor painting
I like painting with watercolor because it's easy to blend colors and make it look more real and not so cartoon looking. This was one of my favorites because I like the way it turned out and how it actually looked more real then all the other ones. It took we awhile to finish this one though, I really wanted it to turn out and look good.

2011 sketch
This was my favorite sketch out of all the ones I did this year. I don't really like any of them all too much, but if I had to pick one, it'd be this one. I used watercolor to make the sunset and then for the trees, I tried to use a paper towel to give them a more tree look, but it didn't turn out as good as I wanted it to.
