Color Theory Portraits and starting Tint/Shade paintings.
The color theory portrait was a project to exercise the class knowledge of the color wheel by creating a portrait of someone else and using warm colors and cool colors in two medias.
I'm excited for this project because I get to use tints and shades like a pro. Contrary to popular belief, I LOVE shading and tinting and I'm so looking forward to this. Silhouettes play a large role in this project as well and I am really feeling good about this!
In high school art classes this week, students created Monochromatic Paintings. Monochromatic is another word for using mainly ONE color in your work. They were required to choose one color and design a painting of their choice. To create dimension, white, black and gray paint could be added to the base color that was chosen. These additions could change the shade, tint or tone of the initial color. The results definitely impressed me! Check them out :)
