Eggs- Repetition

This project was very difficult for me.  I had artist block and I couldn't think of anything!  I changed my idea about four times but I finally decided on an egg.  I thought it would be cool to have the egg look like it was splattered on the paper from the inside and then have an egg carton with different eggs in the background.  This idea wasn't really outside the box and I definitely played it safe.  My repetition in this artwork was the eggs and the floor boards.  I had to have a central point on the horizon that all the lines were facing, and then all the eggs with different colors.  I chose to do watercolor because I had never done it before.  In Art 1 I did acrylic paint and it was fun, but I wanted to try something new.  The mini lessons helped me realize which painting technique I wanted to do, but also how to do it the correct way.  In all honesty this wasn't my favorite project but my next piece is going to be better!
