When I started this project I was very unsure of what I should of done. I had a lot of good ideas and thumbnails but I knew that I could not execute them in a way that they would look as good as I was picturing in my head. Besides the fact that I didn't have very good ideas I also knew that painting is not one of my greater talents. When I finally decided on doing the giraffe I thought it would look way better than it turned out. I love the way the right side of the painting looks but not so much the left side of it. I think the best part of the painting is the grass. I spent a lot of time on it and made many layers of it. I also love the way the trees in the background look. The things I would change is the size of the giraffe, I would have made it so that it was a little bit bigger. I also would have changed the way I made the branches on the tree to the left because those turned out really bad, and I would have blended the grass together just a little bit better. Overall I think that this was one of my better pieces of art even though it still isn't that good.
