For this assignment, I used the painting called Wheat Field with Cypresses at the Haute Galline near Eygalieres by Vincent Van Gogh because i liked how he used impressionism. I used brush 14 around size 17 to create the impressionism effect. I kept tracing the original with small  strokes so that the lines weren't too big. Then i kept blending the colors with the special smudge tool. And as i did that, i kept blending all different types of colors that weren't the same but looked nice when together.

Mona Lisa assignment

For this assignment, I started off outlining the original Mona Lisa painting with a size 3 brush. Then once i outlined her I  removed the original layer and started painting in the 2nd layer with my own details. I added a library in the background( because i love reading and i wanted her to read)  and drew 2 books in her hand so that her arms would have something to hold.  I also thought it would be cute to add feather-like details to her robe so that it wouldn't look too plain.
