I grew most as an artiest by creating my piece because know I know how to use clay the right way. If I can start over I would of made the rocks smaller and used something else to make the waves. I did meet my goal I had for my piece. The risk I made in my art work was trying to put the rock walls up. It was a failure because they fell off and I had to put more slip on to keep it staying up and it did so later it became a successes.
What I changed on my piece was I added more detail in the background. The things that was successful was that the waterfall and how it is easily leveled out with the waterfall on the bottom.
my piece is working out how I want then to be the waterfall is the right size I want it to be, the rocks are the right size, the flowers came out fine, and the background is pufect. The waves on the water aren't looking the way I want them to look like. I haven't ran in to any problems so far. I had to make the fence a little smaller because there was not that much room between the rock walls.
My message in my art is calm and peaceful. Media, techniques, or the elements and principles add meaning by the colors, forms, and the details in the art. Experiment or take risks with media, techniques, and elements and principles of my art are choosing a picture from Google and then adding some of my own details.
