Intro to Painting: Watercolor and Landscapes / Plein Air / Book Binding / Observation

Our Book Binding is progressing NICELY with a lot of you coming in during ET and working – some with a bit of regret about needing to work but… working none-the-less and getting a lot DONE! This week is Finishing the binding and then making the paintings to go INTO the book. Make sure you are also doing the following

  • Making and working from PHOTOGRAPHY of LANDSCAPES that YOU MADE.
    • Think about COMPOSITIONAL TECHNIQUES as you make your photographs: Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Simplify, Framing, Right HEavy, ETC… Include the photographs in the book as well – this means you need to make prints of the photographs.
  • Working from your, and including them in the final books, COLLAGES of landscapes.
  • PLEIN AIR PAINTING – being outside (or observing from a window).

Landscapes are a SOLID part of the artmaking history and we are going to approach it in a number of ways! Collage, Photography, Observation and then… well… that’s it.

      Advanced Digital art and Photography: Photo Manipulation and COMMUNITY!

      We are running out of time – one more week. What is the CONCEPT of your Photomanipulation? How are you digging in deep to create a STRONG COMPOSITION as well as communicating the concept? Make 100% sure the images are yours that you are working from so you can claim 100% ownership!

      Here are some more of the PHENOMINAL ARTIST Erik Johansson’s works that we can be inspired and amazed at.

      We are approaching the end of the unit… how far do you need to go to complete it? While you made strong images to start with – thank you for that – what are you learning about the use of PHOTOSHOP that has made your now PHOTOSHOP PAINTED image strong and effective as a painting into itself?

      End of unit – shut off the original photograph and EXPORT AS – PNG. Turn the PNG into the Google Classroom assignment and make sure you have your STEP by STEP Slideshow completed as well.
