Title: The Badlands: Do Not Enter

Teacher: Mrs. Bussert

Theme: What does a park mean to you?

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint, canvas, quick brush strokes, value, depth and perspective.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, I enjoyed the overall concept of working with art and nature as they are two things I immensely enjoy.

About: The theme we were given to paint about was “What is a park to you?”. To me, a park is a home. A home for organisms of all kinds and a home for me. My grandparents grew up on a park and my grandparents house feels like a home. So, with that feeling, I decided to design a blend of National parks and the feeling of home.
