Recently at college I started another mini project this time mainly focused on painting. I was asked to create 4 A5 collages and make photocopies of them. Out of the photocopies I made I had to choose two and using only 5 colours (Black, dark grey, mid grey, light grey and white) I had to paint these on A4 piece of paper each. When two paintings were finished I was then asked to choose one of the paintings, photocopy it and then paint the photocopy on another piece of A4 paper.

At this stage we were finally allowed to introduce some colours.Exciting!! However we could only use blue and yellow..and only if we wanted to. So I scanned the last painting I created and started to paint it on A2 piece of paper which was much bigger than paper I used before.

The aim of this project was to learn different techniques of painting and mark making. We also learned about how different people interpret the same thing differently according to their own personality, experiences and likes.

So here are some photographs to illustrate each stage I went thorough in this project:

I will soon post the picture of the finished blue and yellow painting!

    1. Thank you! it was indeed very interesting! I loved how we were able to interpret the same image over and over again and see how it changes and how we automatically eliminate or change something we don’t like the look of. So if you like painting (of course you do:) I highly recommend you to try this way of painting one day! πŸ™‚
