19 How eye sees color




23 Fun Facts: This painting is 7 feet high by 10 feet wide. There are 3,456,000 dots that were painted to make up the painting Each dot is only about 1/16th of an inch It was featured in Ferris Buehler’s Day Off It was the subject of a musical


25 Painting the color wheel
You are going to create a color wheel to help you with the Pointillism Project. Primary- red, blue, yellow Secondary- purple, green, and orange Intermediate- yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, red-orange, yellow-orange When making the intermediate colors you mix the secondary color first then add more of the primary color. Example- red-orange: mix red and yellow to get orange then add more red

26 FIRST: Choose a landscape from the reference file
NOW : Practice drawing it in your sketchbook Where is the background? Middleground? Foreground? Draw the physical elements SATISFIED? Draw it on the Canvas Paper

27 The next step is to use pointillism (dots) to create blending of colors in your painting.
Look at your painting, where you used green, you can fill that area in using a tint and shade of green, and yellow -green dots that are close together. This technique can be used for all your colors. Use a tint, shade, and intermediate colors for the dots. ALL DOTS SHOULD BE CLOSE TOGETHER AND SMALL.
