For my opacity drawing i decided to do lips in cellophane using colored pencils on black paper. originally i had planned to do an entire face but struggled with the skin tones and decided to minimize it to just the lips i turned out liking this a lot more because it was open to interpretation and was a little bit eerier which i liked even though mrs rossi said it freaked her out because i like art that invokes an emotion rather than one thats just pretty to look at. I think i struggled with the opacity because you have to really pay attention to the way color changes and train your eye to see things differently. Im most proud of the red in the lip where the cellophane is stretched because i feel like its the most subtle aspect but really helps. if i was to change anything id probably spend more time on the teeth.
