I used colored pencils and then used water over in order to blend the colors more. My inspiration came from wanting to do something that dipicts the English tea cup but pair it with something totally opposite, in this case the drink Monster. I was taking risks with the water topcoat because I wasn't sure how well it would blend the colors or if it would wrinkle the paper too much. While it did affect the paper some, it also helped my colors stand out more.

Text as an Element

I used acrylic paint and photo transfers to compose my piece. The inspiration from my piece was from the idea that everyone has a different view of the world and their own opinions. Each eye is a different color and has a different word around it. I was taking a risk when I did the photo transfer because I was not sure how well it would work, and although it did not come out exactly the way I wanted it, I still like the resulting images.
