We had to chose some images and drawing that we had already created during the workshop to be references in our larger a2 studies.
On A2 pieces of card we started by applying a ground which is a wash of colour in the background to help build the paint onto to avoid drawing out on white paper.
I started my paintings of the objects from different angles on my chose background colour using acrylic.
My original photos were slightly lacking so I decided to add and take out some objects to make my study more busy and interesting while trying not to add to much.
I then took my studies home and took some photocopies, however they came out a different hue of colour to my original piece which created problems for my original idea.
they came out much more vibrant and some of the colours were inverted, I decided to experiment with lay out and decided to have the photocopies contrasting the original piece to create an interesting and compelling composition.
