To describe the First art piece that I had drawn, I would explain it to be a “Intentional complicated mess” there were tress amok every were in the picture, diverting the viewer’s eyes to different parts of the Drawing, and in my eyes in great art pieces there is one vocal point by which the viewer is first attracted to at first glance. Though in this piece there were different aspects of the drawing by which seemed to grab your attention, and to me this is what makes this art piece unique. To my belief I would think that this is what the artist wanted them to experience, or to view the drawing. In the drawing there were many shades of brown in the picture to implement the contrast in the tree branch colors, to the other light and dark shades. The viewer could also notice in the drawing that the color contrast tends to increase in brightness as the tree transcends towards the sky. What made me like the art piece is everything in the art piece seemed to be surrounded/enclosed, though parts of the sky and the savannah were visible, so it wasn’t only a massive tree in the painting; there were other elements which distracted the viewer from the focus of the tree. In this piece I believe the artist had used pencil for the outline of the tree but colors for the actual inner form, the same technique was used for the sky and the savannah
Image as Text Response Critical Response Art by its very nature has the tendency to be labeled either "good" or "bad." However there is no bad art, only art that has failed to connect with a viewer. To broadly label art as either good or bad is hypocritical, how could a Picasso be compared to a Rembrandt? The truth is it can't, and that's the deceptiveness of art in that it seems on the surface to ...
The second piece I critiqued was “PLAIN” it was ordinary. You might think that it is what the artist tried to achieve, a plain compound of drawings. In the inked drawing the artist included, a hand with arrows pierced into it, a drop of a liquidated substance, a tank with a lion as the head, with flowers on its entrance (the top) a prehistoric sort of animal in bones, and a revolver cut at the barrel. All these items had been shaded with a lot of texture, reaffirmed, to the sides of the different drawings in the picture. The ink had been added critically to the edges of some parts of the drawing. To my belief this is how he wanted viewers to be caught, by the heavy shades of ink. The artist seems to be one who has a wide imaginative side, his drawing to me was unique because he fused, to great aspects of the world, a lion who is the king of the jungle(symbolism is superiority) and a tank which is meant to show power and greatness( symbolism dominance/magnitude).
You would find it hard to identify the mood in this picture, but to me I would say it is “Supremacy”, because it seems as if it is showing the super powers which lived on earth. A hand, a hand which signifies (humans), a tank, a lion, and a prehistoric dinosaur (Trex).
In a way you cloud say the artist wanted to show the authority of these super powers by leaving part of the paper blank.
For the first piece the main symbol would be the tree, and what it is trying to communicate/suggest to the viewer is growth, in two ways. First in the recognition of the tree and it natural growth exploited by the massive complicated stems revealing themselves and extending to the sky in the drawing. Second would be in the contrast, from the bottom of the picture you can see the tree as a dark form but as you follow the entwined webs of tree branches you can see a sort of pattern (not exactly) following the outline on the branches, this could also show growth in color wise from being a dark shade to a light one.
Fay Weldon is an English author, essayist and playwright, who has been one of Britain’s most famous novelists. In her stories, Weldon typically portrays women who find themselves trapped in difficult situations. It can be illustrated by the example of her short story “The Bottom Line and the Sharp End”. In this story the author introduces us to the two women: Avril le Ray and Helen. Within the ...
The second piece’s symbol would be “Dominance, Superiority, power” the artist has drawn main super powers in the world, which had shown control in their time, from animals to humans to necessities on earth such as water, and even trees. Though this piece could also show that all the drawings in the picture are connected in ways such as, each could bring destruction, towards one another as in floods, and deaths.
The Composition/arrangement in the first piece, in a way does contribute to the main idea of the drawing, the branches of the tree are tangled and mangled, this to me shows the hardship the tree had gone through to make it to the top to its peak at where it is now. In some of the tree branches the viewer is able to see through the some peepholes (spaces) in the picture; through those you would imagine seeing blank spaces but, the artist has used his blank spaces to his advantage by adding even more branches into the spaces.
Though in the second piece the negative factor would be the use of space, because there were a lot of free spaces which were not used by the artist, I explained earlier that maybe it is because the artist wanted to explain the superiority that he was implying towards the super powers in the drawing. Though to me that factor made the picture loose some of its effect and seem unfinished.
In the first piece there was a lot of brown shades used to heighten the contrast in the tree elevation, as well as darkness represented by (black) in some areas, this color effect on the tree adds a sort of gloomy mood to the drawing, its color is plain, by the depressed emission is lifted by the light color added to the savannah (tinted neon yellow) and the bright like blue for the sky. This helped the drawing greatly so the viewer would not be focused on the solemn tree in the center, so in a way the distraction that the savannah and the sky are making towards the viewer is a positive thing.
For the second piece there weren’t a lot of colors used in the painting, the artist focused more on a black and white type of contrast color, relying more on the majority of the white in the picture but the depth of the blackness. The use of only ink makes the painting straight forward and direct towards the viewer though the “Point” of the whole drawing is difficult for the viewer to figure out.

To for the first piece I believe that the artist had thought well about the colors that he would use from the growth of the contrast of brown, to the bright yellow shade on the grass, and the skyline blue. These colors are what make the picture more effective to the viewer, so that they would be able to pin point the mood/tone easier.
For the second drawing, no color was used which allowed the viewer to notice no emotion what so ever in the picture, the black had succumbed most of its space to the white, which gave the picture no sense of tone, allowing white to dominate a picture to me shows no trace of emotion in the picture, unless is has an equal amount of black, or a decent amount.
In the first art piece you would think that the artist had gone out of control with the use of the amount of tree branches he had formed in the picture, though to me I know it was his intention. He exaggerates the growth of the tree; in some terms you would think that he is compulsive. From this the piece is very interesting it cannot be boring due to the mangled maze of branches which when I first glanced at kept me busy, Trying to untangle the braches. The art piece also keeps you wondering of the true meaning of what it means.
The second art piece, was practically boring it seemed as if the artist just took 7 of his best things in life and drew them on a piece of paper and called it are. Though that is what any ordinary person who looks at the art piece plainly would say. Someone who would look at it through a critiques point of view would say, the art piece was boring yet the meaning behind it was strong enough to back up the lack of imagination in the art piece.
