In the start of painting class we did some paintings on boards to see how we could use colours and just to get us painting. This involved the task of finding loads of small objects, and we would paint them onto the board.
Due to having time restriction and not really being able to pick what I wanted to paint on that day, I didn’t really like this task and I found it annoying cause I couldn’t have time or go into detail. But after I decided to just try to have fun with it, instead of making something good.
My First Board (paint an object)…..
This board we could do what ever I wanted (paint what ever item I wanted), as long as we covered the whole board. I had 10-20 mins to paint this board (I cant remember exactly).
How I did it…..
I started by painting a little panda key chain I have. I got this in New York so I decided to paint it, as it mean something to me. For this I painted the shape of the panda, by painting two circles. Then I added in the arms. Once I had done that I started to add in the 3D affect and then the ears, eyes and hat.
I forgot about the time, so by the time I had done the panda the lecturer said there was a couple of minutes left. So I quickly grabbed a note book I own, with a fox on it. I did the background with the colour the note book and then I started to paint on the fox. I really rushed this. I lightly added the different colours of the fox with a rounded make up brush and this really worked well to make a fur like look. At the end, to add everything together, I flicked paint onto the board just to have something that could link it all together. While the class was talking about each piece I also added the chain of the panda.
The Second Board (focus on one bit of an item)…..
This board I had to paint the whole board again but instead i had to focus into one item and a certain bit of the item. This was a fur of the fox on my notepad.
How I did it…..
For this one it was so simple. I used the same paintbrush as before (rounded makeup brush). I started to just paint lightly in the directions of the fur of the fox. i focus on the stomach/tail/foot.
Third Board (no brushes)…..
This board I had to do a painting with no paint brush. I decided to do the fox again and then I just used my finger. This allowed me To load up the paint and started to paint it on to the board.
How I did this…..
For this I used my finger to paint the paint onto the board. I focused on the same part of the fox as I had before, but I also had an idea I wanted to try to add in texture. While in the class I need to go get tissue, so the tissue I found was really thin. This gave me the idea to put it onto the painting to add some texture but also to have a faded effect on the paint. I laid the tissue over the image I just painted and pressed it on, I also ripped some of it to so I could see the painting underneath as well.
Fourth Board (don’t use black paint)…..
This Board I had to paint something without using black paint. so I decided to do my change holder that I got from morocco. even thought it had a black as a main colour.
How I did this…..
I started by figure painting the morocco bag. as the main colour was black I decided to use purple instead. Then I started to add the detailing the best I could with my finger but ended up just dotting it on. Then i went in with the tissue to add the texture of the bag (material). I added two layers and then i wanted to leave it so I didn’t mess it up.
All of them…..
