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!
Art II students (1st Hour) created these lovely Tint Tree Silhouettes. The paintings were completed with masking tape, and tempera paint. Through this project, students were learning basics of the color wheel - in this case, tint (when white is added to change a color). It was also a good test of their craftsmanship, and attention to detail. I am really happy with the results! Enjoy :)
Up next for 1st Hour - Post-It murals as a group project!
