<p>Equivalents - summary template</p> <p>Equivalents ProjectLucian Stuart-Davidson</p> <p>Source of Inspiration</p> <p>Above and below, Picasso expresses the visual objects with bold outline, giving them a definite shape and distinct place within the page. The objects, although distorted are identifiable through the use of colour and shape.</p> <p>Variation of Formal Elements</p> <p>Line drawingMark makingTonalMeasured drawingFormal elements are the combined building blocks to develop a piece of design and art.</p> <p>Formal Elements are:-line, tone and colour-pattern and texture-shape and scale</p> <p>Assessment criteria: An example and commentary of how you have used visual language in your work and how it has been influenced by others work.</p> <p>Examples: Homework research and studies produced such as in the style ofpainting, collage work, sculpture research and development, cubism, photographyArtist Influence</p> <p>Left is a painting of the still life in the style of Picasso. I used the selection of contrasting colours, and variation of thickness in lines that Picasso displays in the painting below to express the objects in this scene.</p> <p>Techniques USED </p> <p>This is a photograph of my print, created using an assortment of fabrics, string, cardboard and textiles to create a still life scene with visible texture and shape. I used materials that have a similar texture or pattern to the object they are shaping, such as the ribbon running along the top of the print is made of a silky fabric placed above string to emulate the creases in the fabric. </p> <p>Development of Model</p> <p>This is the first stage of the development of my 3D model. I have incorporated patterns and shapes from the still life in class, in turn to create this physical model of my work in my sketchbook.This sketch uses many of the same features from the model, but adds and changes small characteristics to give the model more shape.This cardboard model is a 3D version of the sketch before. They have slight difference between them because once working on the model I found some features easier to display in the sketch than to actually create them.</p> <p>EvaluationIn conclusion to this project, I believe that I still could have managed my time more successfully. This is apparent in my sketch book, where my homework is completed but could have been presented in an artistic fashion. The research I did covered areas such as: other artists work and the techniques they used, various methods of printing which each have their advantages and disadvantages. I have drawn and studied other artists work to understand their process and technique. My sources of research came from websites, such as: Artcyclopedia and Grove Art, but also books on themes and famous artist I have at home. It is clear that I can successfully develop ideas, taking into account features that could be changed or removed, that in turn make my project more appealing. This is evident in my development of the 3D model in class, I have built the model from previous sketches while adding or removing features that work to the end goal of a clean and descriptive model. When creating my print, I could have sketched a selection of different designs to see which was most suitable and made the most visual and kinetic impact.In the development of my model prototype, I used cardboard in various forms to emulate the textures and shapes of the still life. I did this by cutting and folding the card into other shapes and also using the corrugated pattern inside of cardboard. The use of string is to reference the finer details of the still life such as the scrim roll.When developing my paintings, I found it useful to match the colours to the object to find the most similar hue. Many of my references were form previous practice in sketching and painting during my GCSEs and at home. In the development of my model, through the changes made between each stage I took into consideration what aspects of the design were consistent and worth having - such as the shape, texture and scale of the model and also what did not have an impact on the model and could be discarded.</p> <p>My print displays elements of shape, texture, scale, tone and pattern through the assortment of materials. The important thing is that my print must display a scene close to that of the still life, but representing the textures of the objects with materials used. This final piece communicates, not only the skills I have developed during the course so far, but the depth and shape of the still life. I have achieved this sense of depth by overlaying materials above another, using thicker and bolder items to bring the order of object from the foreground to background.</p> <p>I have answered the brief fully through the range of techniques and studies developed in class, this include variation of pencil drawings displaying methods of tone and mark making. I have also created a 3D model that is the equivalent of these drawings and the still life in class.Over the course so far I have learnt to mix and blend paints more confidently and methods of describing an image with proper vocabulary and relevant themes. I have presented my work well in my book, but have slightly neglected the blog (which I will tend to during the half term). I think to further develop my skill I should begin to take what I have learnt from class and use it beneficially to improve my current and future work.</p>
