5 Step Critique
1) See Drawing 2)This picture is of a pistachio on a table with its other shell. One of the shells has clockwork in it to resemble a sy-fi look into the future. I added a warm filter on the picture, and then I added noise to make it feel a little more comfy. Their is a wood background as well to bring the whole picture together. 3) One Element of art in this picture that really makes it focus on the main point is space. The space between the nut shell and the left side of the picture really lead your eye to the main point. Then the noise in the whole picture adds an affect to make it seem closer. The principal of design in this piece is moment. The wood grain is pointing downward making my eye want to go down while the gears and pistachios are in the upper part condescending my eye. 4) In this piece of work I was trying to review the theme that nature again is becoming un-natural in itself. A pistachio would have its seed in it but instead it is working like a machine. Placing cogs in a nut is just showing how man might be going to far and we have to resort to our old ways of preserving life through health. 5) When I judge this piece I see the problems with outlining the cogs. I Need to take more time on that specifically. I also saw the blur in the picture when i took it, it should have been more clear. I would need to work on blending those so it looks natural, but instead the cogs look like its juts laying on it. Finally the brightness of the cogs compared to the rest of the picture is not compatible with the mood, I would have to make it look like the rest of the picture.
