Drawing and Painting Daily Plans Nov 25-27, 2013 Ms. Livoti
Monday 11/25/2013 Aim: How can you complete your landscape painting? Do Now: Quiz Corrections Homework: Visual Journal Due Next Friday: Look for little details. Draw a small thing that you see 2x a day for the next 5 days. Draw each item with detail and shading, and a cast shadow. Must be a real thing that you notice. No cartoons. Painting Project Critique Tomorrow- deadline was extended a day.
TUESDAY 11/26/2013 Do Now: photograph your project using the ipad. Aim: How can we critique and assess your work? Homework: Visual Journal Due Next Friday: Look for little details. Draw a small thing that you see 2x a day for the next 5 days. Draw each item with detail and shading, and a cast shadow. Must be a real thing that you notice. No cartoons.
Wednesday 11/27 Aim: What are colored pencil techniques? Do Now: What is something you are thankful for having learned or done in this class? What do you want to continue to learn/do in this class? Homework: Visual Journal Due Next Friday: Look for little details. Draw a small thing that you see 2x a day for the next 5 days. Draw each item with detail and shading, and a cast shadow. Must be a real thing that you notice. No cartoons.
Why choose colored pencil? Colored pencil is a great media to use for a variety of subject matter. It offers the ability to build dense color through layering and blending. It can achieve great realism, often looking similar to a painting, or from far away, a photograph. It can be used in a loose, sketchy manner You can lay colors next to each other in an impressionist way to let the eye blend color together.
Colored Pencil Techniques Directional line: short/long lines following the curve of the form. Shows direction of th form. Cross Hatching: overlapping density of lines/overlapping color Scumbling: Using a circular motion with the pencil; overlapping circles. This technique is needed for blending color smoothly (if that is the texture you are trying to achieve) Shading with Pressure: This is always needed in colored pencil drawings. Start with a soft pressure, and gradually press harder to apply more color. Burnishing: Layering colored pencil over the tooth of the paper to fill in the tooth with strong pressure. Creates a smooth surface, with a translucent effect.
Important characteristics Colored pencil is transparent! This means, you should not press hard with graphite pencil underneath it, because it will show. Use a brown colored pencil, it will blend in better later on. Colored pencil is most effective when you use a lot of…COLOR! The more colors you can use in between other colors, the more the colors will blend together and the more realistic the work will look.
Steps to Creating a Colored Pencil Drawing Very lightly trace the shapes of the light and dark colors of your reference.Make a contour around all the shapes of COLORS that you see. Use the pencil that is the color of that shape to trace it. Put in black under-colors. ALWAYS put darker colors first, over lap lighter ones on top. Color in value order- dark to light. Leave lightest values the white of the paper. With very light pressure, place each color into the appropriate shapes in your drawing. Start to blend. Work with families of related colors. Always blend using the lighter color, or choose a color in between the two colors you are trying to blend. This will offer a smooth transition between colors. Depending on the kind of line you are using to shade, you can continue building the layers of colored pencil for a burnished effect.
Additional Tips Use the colors that you see in your reference image. The more colors your reference image has, the better your drawing will be. The more colored pencils you use, the more seamless your blending will be. Trace the contours of color so they are the exact size, shape, color and value. Use a paper with out a lot of tooth if you want a smooth finish like brisotl, or tagboard. Purchase the colors you have in your reference photo individually. Individual Prismacolors are usually.99 cents. Now you will have an exact set of colors for the image you are rendering. Use a colorless blender if you want to blend with out adding more pigment. Use complements to make colors stand out- warm colors pop (use for highlights) and cool colors recede (use for shadow)
