They can try to answer these questions to make the description of the painting. –You can begin with a description of subject matter: Who or what is the painting about? Is it a portrait of someone, a still life of objects or a scenic landscape? What are the shapes in the painting? –Look closely to see what relationship the subjects have to each other: Do they face each other? Are they touching or moving away from each other? –Describe color: Are many colors used? Are the colors dark or bright? –Look for the balance in the painting: Is there more happening on one side than the other? Does some shape or color deliberately draw your attention to one corner of the canvas? –Define the focal point: What is the most important part of the scene? Where did your eyes go first? The artist did this deliberately so discuss this. –What is the mood of the work? What mood or feeling did it bring out in you? Think back to the subject matter and also color for this. Your answer to this probably came the first moment you looked at it. –What style is the painting done in? Is it realistic, impressionistic, abstract...?
