Drawing & Painting II

Master Copy Remix

Draw/Paint II

OVERVIEW & PURPOSE

Learning to paint is difficult… very difficult.  Just like most other traditions, it is very helpful to know who did it before you were around, and what they learned while doing it. This can help us from having to reinvent the wheel so to speak. Consider the remix in music, this is considered one of the highest forms of respect a musician can pay to another musician, to rework their song in their own unique way. In this project, you will be asked to abstract/deconstruct a painting by a modern master.

Stages of Abstraction

  1. Non-objective fragmentation: Simplifying shapes and color information, still refers to reality and may maintain 3 dimensional form.

  2. De-construction: Breaking down shapes into separate pieces, simplification of forms, beginning to have less depth.

  3. 2D: (flat. height & length only, no depth of field. May still loosely refer to recognizable images)

4. Non-figurative: (not realistic at all…shapes, color and line)

Learning Objectives

  1. Create an accurate translation of a master painting using a grid, projection or windshield wiper looking methods.

  2. Identify and practice a common color palette or the arbitrary color challenge.

  3. Develop/cultivate craftsmanship and the artistic studio habits of mind.

MATERIALS NEEDED

  1. Variety of drawing materials

  2. Tracing Paper

  1. Acrylic Paints/gesso

  2. Canvas bars, canvas, staples

ACTIVITY

  1. Select a master-copy to work from. SELECT FROM WORKS HERE

  2. Begin developing sketches from your master painting. Experiment with a variety of stages along the abstraction spectrum. Minimum 5 sketches. 1 Study.

  3. Identify which method of transfer you will use and transfer image.  (Grid vs. Windshield Wiper looking)

  4. Identify you palette (3-5 colors plus tints, tones and shades) and take some time to consider what colors will go where. Do not move on until you know what color every part of your drawing will be, a color study be completed in colored pencil beforehand.

  5. Palette Options: Monochromatic/achromatic, Complementary, Split Complementary, Warm/Cool Dominant, Triadic, Arbitrary Color, Inverse/Opposite Colors.

  6. Build, Gesso Canvas. Begin transferring images that you developed in thumbnail sketches and studies. Do not begin this step until you have thoroughly completed steps 1-5.
