we are learning about the elements and techniques of painting. We are able to share our cultural identities through the arts.
I chose the New Zealand culture for my painting, because me and my parents were born in New Zealand. I researched a few icons but realised that marmite was a good icon to do. I chose marmite because I love marmite and it is well known in New Zealand.
And then I learnt about Andy Warhol and how he said the rules of art were meant to be broken. Andy Warhol created pop art. In this style he chose popular icons and painted them using different colour mixes.
I learnt about the colour wheel and the different colours on it. Such as
PRIMARY COLOURS. SECONDARY COLOURS COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS
red, yellow and blue. made by mixing primary colours oppisite on the colour
ANALAGOUS COLOURS MONOCHROME
3 colours side by side on the 3 shades of one colour
We drew a bold design of our icon using a drawing pencil. Then we turned it over and traced it onto A2 paper four times one in each quadrant.
Then we chose the colours to paint our icons,
COMPLEMENTARY- blue and orange
ANALAGOUS- green, blue and turqouse
BLACK AND WHITE- black, white and grey
MONOCHROME-light purple, dark purple and grape purple
I think my art work was very successful it looks
