  • 11. Conclusion
    • Different strokes with the brush, representing different textures in the painting is the main stylistic trait I was aiming to have be similar to those of John Singer Sargent’s.
    • After painting my interpretation of the fabulous artist, I learned that there are many, many different sub-categories under the category of art.
    • The most interesting part of creating my artwork, was picking colors that would work well and contrast the piece of art well.
    • I think the trees of my artwork are the strength of my art because the texture is so bold, standing out form the water, sky or grass.
    • I think the sky is a weak, I could have incorporated more colors and made it stand out next to the trees.
