Today, at my art class I started my two ATC/ACEO’s. I had already planned what I wanted to do before the lesson and had lightly drawn the designs onto the cards to save time.
Quite a few of my class mates just couldn’t get on with Pointillism so, they made a start on their projects. I started the “I Love Art” in the lesson and then finished it off when I got home. I decided to to the other ATC/ACEO afterwards just so I had them both done ready to show my art teacher next week. You can find them under the ATC/ACEO tab. I haven’t titled one of them yet as I’m not too sure what to call it.
In art today my art teacher got us to explore the different techniques of Pointillism.
I really enjoyed experimenting with different strokes and different combinations of colour to create optical colour blends.
As you can see below these are the different strokes and colour mixes I came up with using watercolours.
In next week’s lesson I am going to attempt a couple of ATC/ACEO’s in Pointillism just to see what the effect will be and also to have a couple of completed pieces in this style. I’ve chosen to do those as they are small enough to finish. Some Pointillism paintings can take years to complete….I don’t think I have that much patience!
