For the theme Scientific I started thinking about science and how it came to be. I thought back to Benjamin Franklin and the light bulb, and then I thought about Albert Einstein and how I could incorporate him. I decided to draw his face with a light bulb, showing multiple scientific ideas.
The mini lessons before our projects were very beneficial. They introduced new techniques to using the mediums, pencil, pen, and charcoal. It also helped for us to become more comfortable with them, and make it easier for us to use these mediums.
I showed contrast in my work but using stippling. There is contrast between Einstein's face and his coat. His coat is really dark, and the rest of the picture is lighter.
To do my project, I chose to use pen and ink. I feel more controlled when I use pen and ink. When I use pencil or charcoal, I feel like I smear it everywhere.
To create my work, I used stippling. To created contrast I used a lot of dots in the darker areas, compared to little dots in the lighter areas.
I have never use stippling to create a project so I really enjoyed that, as well as drawing a human face. Over all I have really enjoyed working on this project.
