Title: STRING AND NAILS, 2D Mixed Media/Collage

My project I had worked on is made of string and nails. Having experience with drawing, painting, mixed media and the elements and principles of art really helped me figure out how to do this project on my own. When you look at it close up, you can see all the little shapes that put it all together from afar. It is took a lot of problem solving to make it come to life. After looking at it from a distance over and over again to see what needs to be done next, I realized I needed to add color to make it unique. I used contrasting colors blue and orange. Orange is lighter than blue and this helped with my shading. They are also two of my favorite colors. I was inspired to do this interesting project by artist Zenyk Palagniuk. I really enjoyed doing this and learning from this project.
