Date: Spring Semester 2020

Objective: The environment we live in is composed of opposites. Choose a set of divergent ideas and represent them visually.

Description: The goal for this project was to take two opposites and depict them in a way that represents the opposites. For my project, the opposites that I chose where Sun and Moon, and Dawn and Dusk. For Sun and Moon, I depicted them as characters. The sun, is represented by a man holding a glowing scepter, the color pallet that I chose for the sun where warm colors like yellows, golds, oranges, and reds. I also made the setting of the scene that the sun is in take place during the daytime. For the moon, I depicted a female holding a pale white crescent scythe that represents the moon. I used cooler colors like blues, and grays. And like the sun, the setting of the scene takes place at night.

The next set of opposites that I chose where Dawn and Dusk. For this set of opposites I decided to depict a scene that shows the differences in the sky during dawn and dusk. For dawn, the sky is depicted with soft pastel colors of reds, pinks, and oranges. There are also seagulls that are flying throughout the sky. For dusk the sky is depicted with rich and bright colors of oranges, reds, greens, and purples, and instead of seagulls, fireflies fill the lower parts of the sky.
