Experimenting is ...... fun, exciting, a chance to make a mess, a chance to question yourself and the task you are doing. Well, I went through all of these and the one thing that is missing when you do these things yourself is feedback. I know there are no right or wrong answers (except my art tutor says that you can tell when some things are definitely wrong!) and that art is all about experimenting and finding things yourself, but when you are learning it would be nice for someone to look over your shoulder and say "yes, you are on the right track". They don't need to say that it looks great (although that feedback is always welcome!), but it helps if you know that you are following the learning path set out in the assignments.
So, I have to ask you, reader (if anyone is reading this blog!), to tell me what you think of the colours. The assignment is designed to focus on the production of chromatic grays. This is described in the book as follows:
"Chromatic Grays exhibit a subtle, yet discernible hue. One can create chromatic grays by adding black, white, or gray to the prismatic colour. Adding the complement of a hue will also diminish its saturation and produce a chromatic gray. Chromatic grays simply require larger quantities of black, white, gray or the complementary colour."
Assignment No 1
I'm not so sure that the colours are subtle enough, but I'm sure my art tutor will advise me when I see her next.
I hope that you can leave a comment as some readers haven't been able to.
