For my material project, I have chosen to do ‘Painting the surface’, where we pick an object or image and recreate it 6 times using different painting techniques.
The first canvas was painted using oil paints on a grey scale going dark to light. Starting with a black base layer and slowly adding white to my mixed black creating a thick, grey scale landscape.
The second canvas was opposite to the first, using oil paints in greyscale from light to dark but painting thin layers rather than thick. After making this and waiting for it to try, I then used a glaze over the top. The first glaze was orange, as this was complementary to my ‘blue’ black and the second was blue. These glazes added more depth to my painting.
