For this project, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to portray, especially since it had to include movement. The sketch that I used for my final project was actually compositional sketch three out of six of the champagne sequence. Initially I just drew the bottle with the cork and the champagne shooting out, then added all the bubbles because I wanted the design to be more whimsical and graphic so it would fit my style. This project is all about fun and excitement to me, and I guess that's the meaning I've assigned to something so simple. My use of texture in the piece enhances the image by making the foil, cork, and bubbles all look different. Though they are all drawn on the same plane, the texture I added gives the piece depth and dimension. It helps the viewer distinguish between materials and imagine what the original image would have looked like. I balanced my artwork by adding the larger bubbles on the left side to outweigh the champagne spray on the right. Had I left just the champagne, the piece would have felt more empty and one-sided. The key part of the composition of the piece is the strong diagonal line of the bottle (you know, diagonal lines add excitement). The piece basically shatters the rule of thirds. The main movement shown in the piece is the champagne exploding out of the bottom. When I think about it more, I think the large bubbles floating is another implied movement in the piece. I could definitely improve my artwork by, you know, getting better at drawing circles. They are all so lopsided and weird looking. Also, I could try to make the foil wrapper look less comical and give it some more crinkles. I demonstrated a wide range of values by starting everything out on the same light level, then picking things to lighten to varying degrees depending on the light source and personal preference. I also forced myself to push my whites, even though that's not something I'm used to.
