AP students will create a painting of an everyday object in an unusual state. The students may use the actual object as a reference (ex. drawing from life) or from own photos and plan using multiple sketches to arrive at a thoughtful conclusion.
1. Brainstorm 20 ideas for the project: Ask yourself how can you make an everyday object interesting? Will it be abstracted? Will it have a different color scheme? Interesting point of view? Is it placed in an unusual environment? Start looking up reference ideas and taking pictures. Focus on TEXTURE, COLOR, and EMPHASIS, PATTERN, JUXTAPOSITION
2. Choose 2 best ideas and create at 4 compositional sketches for each idea to help arrange the elements and how you will crop the image (Discuss Plan with Rossi). Make sure you have at least 5 color references for each idea printed and glued in sketchbook.
3. Do a planned final color sketch that brings all ideas together for final design.
4.Choose size of canvas. Sketch design on canvas. Paint a tonal wash or a colored wash over sketch. Complete the painting with superb craftsmanship.
5. Make sure to take in progress pictures throughout process.
Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas.
