The second critique of the semester was this week. I had completed one piece and got close to completing another work to show to my peers. The first work helped influence my second in many ways, showing me how to approach the second piece, what aspects I enjoyed from the first one and which ones I didn't. I knew I had to finish the first one in order to learn from it, in all honesty I hate how it looks, there are moments in the work that I enjoyed the process and finished product but as a whole it is not where I want my artwork to go. The second piece was more enjoyable to work on and create, I felt like I had room to breathe in the work. I plan on working on it a little more then starting a new one that really shows the direction I desire.
Charlene Von Hehl and Christopher Wool are two artists I have been looking out and learning their process when it comes to their work. I can find connections of their work with mine, when it comes to paint application and colors choices. During the critique I was given a few more names to look into.
