1. Discussion This image of Caernarfon Castle by Joseph Dodd was painted during the Nineteenth Century. Not only does it show how people used to dress but it also shows some of the modes of transport used during the period. It is fascinating to think that this was the view that the artist could see when painting the picture. Look carefully at the painting. What might be different if we were looking at this view today? Joseph Josiah Dodd Caernarfon castle, Market Day
The artist has chosen to simplify the form of the farmhouse, clouds and bushes. By reflecting the red sky in the windows of the building and in the bushes, Gwilym Pritchard has successfully unified the composition. The use of texture in the thickness of the paint has given the image depth. In this painting by Gwilym Pritchard we see a completely different style from Joseph Dodd's work. Gwilym Pritchard Red Sky and Farmhouse
In David Woodford's painting, After the Rain, we see an effective example of producing reflections to represent wet surfaces. David Woodford After the Rain By using a similar tone in each shade of colour the artist has been able to reproduce the essence of a rainy, cloudy day.
Look at the paintings of by Gwilym Pritchard and David Woodford. Discuss the works using words to describe the colours (e.g. warm, cold, bright, dull, light, dark etc... ) and the image (e.g. detailed, simple, colourful, realistic, imaginative etc... ). David Woodford After the Rain Gwilym Pritchard Red Sky and Farmhouse
What is the prominent use of colour? Where can you see this colour? Why do you think he chose these places to put the colour? Look carefully at Gwilym Pritchard’s use of colour.
How do you think he has achieved these effects? What colours has he used to make the rooftops look wet? Do you think the reflections are important, and why? Look at the way David Woodford depicts light
2. Drawing Materials needed: Sketch books or paper and drawing boards, charcoal, pencils, graphite sticks, white oil pastels, Indian ink, water pots. Take your sketch books, pencil and charcoal outside. Make drawings of any buildings you can see using all the materials you have. Use as many different marks as possible. Try to add as much detail as you can to your drawings. Make sure that you fill the page with your drawing. Make three drawings of three different buildings Back in the classroom, use the white oil pastels to add lighter areas to your best drawing. Dip the graphite stick into the black ink and draw over your darkest lines - look at the interesting marks that can be made in this way! Now look at worksheet 1
3. Collage and Drawing Materials needed: A2 drawing paper, various collage paper (Newspaper, brown paper, tissue, crepe, thick card etc) PVA glue, masking tape, white paint, ink, charcoal, graphite, pencil, brush, water pot Go back to one of the original drawings you did at the beginning of the project. Select one that has lots of lines and shapes in it. Before you start drawing you need to prepare your drawing surface. To do this, take your A2 drawing paper, rip up various other kinds of paper (newspaper, brown paper, tissue) into interesting shapes. Scrunch some of them up and flatten them out to create new textures. Stick them to your drawing paper, overlap some of them, leave some of the drawing paper showing. Use PVA glue to ensure that the paper is stuck down properly. Use masking tape in some areas to create straight edges in contrast to the ripped edges of the paper. Once you are happy with your new drawing surface, leave to dry. Now look at worksheet 2
