Student Example 07:Non-majors and Art minors

Introduction to Art UW-Madison, 2020-2021

Assignment: Sketch, Draw, or Paint from Observation 

Students were asked to capture light, color, form, and movement in the landscape and encouraged to work in a ‘loose’ technique similar to Monet, laying down some light pencil sketches, areas of color and then works on top to capture more fleeting details. They were encouraged to avoid only using the obvious color—blue for sky, green for grass-referred to as Local Color and strive for Perceptual Color and/or Optical Color.

Themes: color, drawing, illustration, observation, line, shape, composition, movement
