Enriched Art I & II Georgia O’Keeffe Abstract Painting
Georgia O’Keeffe- American Abstract Artist Studied at Art Institute in Chicago Mailed some of her drawings to a friend in NYC with Specific directions NOT to show them to anyone & he gave them to Alfred Stieglitz (famous photographer) who put them in a new modern art exhibit…She immediately traveled to NYC to confront him & ended up staying & later marrying Stieglitz
O’Keeffe’s Abstract Paintings Can you identify what these subjects are? Flowers? How are they abstract? How are they realistic? What makes these interesting/creative?
More O’Keeffe Paintings… Notice how the subject matter takes up the entire space/canvas Remember using view finders? Same type of process…
Principles of Design What are the dominant Design Principles in this painting? – Pattern, Emphasis, Contrast, Balance, Unity, Movement, Rhythm
Realistic Subjects…Abstract Compositions Can you identify these subjects?
Check out these… I took these images on my phone…clearly, they are toys
Some more… Besides toys, there are many possibilities of subjects… These are common subjects cropped in interesting ways
More home photos… Common, everyday subjects Abstract in composition
OK, So what are you gonna do? You will come up with 3 sketches from photos or observation that crop in on common subject matter DUE: 12/8 & 12/9 Be sure: – You use your OWN pictures – You don’t zoom in too close & lose details – You capture your subject in an INTERESTING composition
Media? Acrylic Paint! 1 st Exercise: due by 12/4 & 12/5 – Paint a 10 step value scale using only these 3 colors: Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna & White – Demonstrate a gradual but clear change in value
Enriched Art I- O’Keeffe Painting Objectives Painting must demonstrate the following: – Strong compositional arrangement using cropped observable subject – Under-painting / Ground Layer – Drawing with the Brush over the under-painting – Layering methods/techniques – Large shapes and values addressed 1 st (large brushes) – Detail work completed last! (small brushes) – Limited Palette: White, Ultramarine Blue & Burnt Sienna ONLY Due 1/8 & 1/9: Class Critique **Exam Week 1/12-1/16: Will take POST-assessment & do Portfolio/Reflection**
Example: This painting uses the same limited palette you will use. Observe the range of value…Both warm & cool tones are used
