At my school there are events and gallery displayed up in the ballroom area. I decided to take a look at what this group of people had displayed up there to see what I might find. This piece really caught my eye. I really like landscape drawings and want to get better at them myself so I like to appreciate other peoples drawings when I see them too. This piece caught my eye do to the use of line and color, those are the primary elements used here and they do a great job with them. Instead of using various shades of green the artist only chooses to use a couple shades that way you can see where the light and dark is within the trees causing the illusion of depth. With the choice of a few shades of color over many they are able to create a sense of business, the line direction points everywhere and the lines aren’t smoothed out at all which makes me believe that the forest is alive and active.
