There are three types of relief low, meduium, and high relief. for my project i chose to do a medium relief using clay. i chose to use clay because its easy to add texture too and i needed a lot of texture to correctly portray the feathers. To finish my piece i painted it and used a process where i watered down dark paint to add diminsion to the colors of the bird. My favorite part of this piece is the dimision in the wings and if i could change anything about this piece i would go back and give the bird legs which somehow i forgot to do.

Land Art

Land art is a temporary form of art involving things from nature and our natural surroundings. i chose to do the piece i did because i was interested in the concept of taking something from nature and making it look as if it didn't belong there. if i was to do something differently i would do a series of leaves that compliment each other and put them together.
