#MidWeek #Wednesday already? Sheesh…

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal. – Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

What 3 challenges do you see in the process of mixing colors? 

BTW…

frank,
the results r great !! i am actually very impressed that you went beyond –
to make a drawings of the crumble pieces. it is a perfect move –
to show kids the possibilities and open the wide range of vision.
just perfect move!) and next one – as you said seems perfect too –
to the large scale paintings from it. plus it does bring the idea of pop –
using common objects reminding of course of warhol as well as rosenquist paintings
v
ps. next time in WI – coffee would be great)

PAINTING: Oil Painting Coming Up Soon… Let’s build a canvas!

What is one question you have about the process of building a canvas? Ask around and see if your classmates can help you resolve those questions before you begin to build.

What can YOU draw well when it comes to the portrait? Practice in your sketchbook! https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/9f/fb/ca/9ffbcae8de3b925577329c6197a6b51b.jpg

Practicing the FACIAL FEATURES is a lot of work. Looking at the few facial features / shapes / forms you have drawn today… what is the #1 Challenge (and WHY) you faced – no pun intended.

Using CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS as your impetus… you will need to RESEARCH a GALLERY ARTIST that is CONTEMPORARY and base your pose on their composition. This might be homework, but it’ll be woth it! http://artviaanderson.weebly.com/theory-and-practice/self-portraits-then-and-now
