Still Life of Forms

Go to this website to see similar examples from another school. 

A form is a three dimensional shape. 
It is able to stand up in a surface. 
Because it is 3D, light hits the form and gives the form various shades. 
A variety of darks and light is called Value. 

Study the forms above. 
Where is the light coming from? 
How does light effect round and flat forms differently?

We will need to practice with making smooth value. 
YOu will be given a value scale practice page to complete before you begin the still life. 

Here is what your value scale sheet should look like when you are done....

  1. the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, 
  2.                                                               especially in dim light.

When the sun is rising or setting, it is on the edge of behind the horizon line. This causes what you see to be dark, because the light is not shining ON it, it is BEHIND it. We are seeing the dark side of the object. 

Draw the outline of a scene in pencil. 
Do not worry about inside details, just the outside shape. 
If it is an object below the horizon line, it will not show up. 
So, try to keep your horizon line low on the paper. 

Next, we will paint the sunset. 
Before you get ready study the color wheel and study the order of colors that would be in a sunset. 
This is our paint pallet. 
If there is a color that is not there, you will have to make the color by mixing. 
Make sure you mix clean and do not cross contaminate the color pallet. 
To do this, you must Clean your brush out each time you get a color. 

1st period painters


When it is time to paint the sunset, we will use tempera cakes. These work with water. The more water you add, the lighter the color. When you add colors to your sunset, refer to the color wheel for order and blending. You can use every color in the wheel, except for green. Typically, yellow or whit is used first at the bottom for the area where the sun is. Then you go upwards into orange, pink, red, purple, blue  and black. Not all of these colors are always visible in a sunset. Study images online for examples of sunsets. Here are some I found that I thought were inspiring....

When you are done, you can now fill in your silhouette with black. 
I like to use the black from the tempera cakes or an acrylic paint. 

                                                        Use a small brush for the landscape.
