Drawing & Painting II students just completed their oil pastel leaves. These 10"x 18" drawings are bold and colorful. Students recreated the textures and colors found in various fall leaves using two different types of oil pastels. Even though the oil pastels were messy, students were very happy with how their projects came out.
Check out the video of a time lapse pencil drawing of an eye. Watch how the artist layers the values and builds up the drawing. Also notice how the artist uses the white of the paper to create highlights. Lots of careful observation.
Take note of what is happening in the image. Come up with an appropriate and possibly insightful, comedic, creative caption for what you think is happening based on what you see in the painting. If can be something you think one of the people might be saying, thinking, planning, doing. Be creative and have fun with it.
Be sure to follow the blogging guidelines given to you in class.
Here are some of the finished Surreal Hands & Bugs. Students juxtaposed hands and bugs together to create a composition that surprises the viewer. They used geometric and organic patterns in the negative space while incorporating complementary colors. Student work will be on display in the GWing showcases later this week.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
