Observational Tempera Architecture
Students will build upon their photo translation drawing skills, remembering the grid and segmenting space when thinking about spatial relationships. Students will free-hand draw a cropped architectural space and abstract some components to accentuate the painterly approach.
Students will practice using both graphic and painterly approaches to painting.
Students will practice mixing colors using tempera paint, an opaque painting medium.
Final Project: Abstract Architectural Tempera Painting
Use your limited color palette to paint the drawn composition, using graphic and painterly styles.
• Graphic areas have even coloration throughout
• Painterly areas leave two colors partially mixed, so both original colors are visible as well as the new mixed color
