I was given the opportunity to study Aaron De La Cruz’s Mano Y Mano Show at Above Second Gallery 2011. After working with this painting for the semester, I have discovered that even though this painting is busy, there are many principles and elements of design, along with design theories incorporated within it. Overall, these elements combine to display a stunning and intricate painting. My final assignment, Project 3C, displays the many assignments I have completed this past semester. These assignments show my evolving understanding of these principals and elements of design.
