Colour Development

During colour development I learned about the use of tonal colours, primary colours, secondary colours and monochrome. We looked at cut outs by Matisse and how he used colour and shape.

From this I created 4 A5 cut outs using colour in different ways.

I made these cut outs by referencing objects through a viewfinder.

Before I made the cut outs I did some quick sketches of what I saw through the viewfinder.

I enjoyed this workshop because I got to experiment using colour in different ways and created some abstract pieces of work.
