Fun in Art Class
We mainly worked with colour and composition yesterday. This teacher has chosen an environmental theme for her subjects this year. Last time we painted containers and before that, a pile of newspapers. This time we chose from photos of beach detritus.
We analyzed the photo as to which colours were present and in what percentage, then painted just strips of colour in that percentage of a sheet of paper. Next we painted ordinary pieces of paper in those colours, hopefully in sufficient quantity. Then we cut or tore these pieces so as to compose.
Next we chose which one we preferred to paint.
I had to time to do a second one in a small format.
≈ 10cm square
I am not particularly inclined to paint abstractly. Usually it somehow turns into a flower. I think this time I avoided that. 🙂
My classmates found my work to be poetic.
