Assignment #6
Large-scale pastel project

Home | CeramicsDrawing | Photography | Foundation Art

Project:  Select a 1'' by 1 3/4" area of one of your pinhole photographs.  Quickly sketch the general composition and begin assigning color so as to achieve a maximum sense of depth in the overall work.  Remember that warm colors tend to advance, while cool colors tend to recede.  Also remember that color saturation (tints, shades, etc...) plays a key role in achieving a sense of depth.   Asymmetrical balance and abstract qualities are strongly encouraged.  Consider adding imaginary detail and blending large areas of negative space into dynamic fields of color.

Scale: 18" x 24"

Medium:  pastel
