This week, I met Shalane Holm. She is a fourth year at CSULB and she is a drawing and painting major. I asked her when she started having an interest in art and she said that she has been drawing ever since she was little. She decided to be an art major because art is what she is best at and she has the support from her family.
Our question of the week is: What is your favorite type of art and why.
Shalane’s favorite type of art are paintings. She appreciates the the time it took to create a painting. She knows how much goes into creating paintings because she is an art major. She knows it takes a long time and the materials are expensive. She likes paintings with strong values, color contrast, mix of lights and darks, and vibrant colors against dark colors. Shalane also likes to look at paintings she does not like because even though she does not like the painting, she still appreciates the work put in by the artist. I asked her what makes her not like a painting and she said that she does not like paintings with muddy colors and ones that do not appeal to the eye.
