For each assessment, 2 artworks are submitted.
This Garden Collage was finished many weeks ago. The brief was to prepare several sheets of A4 paper using 'wet on wet' watercolour technique. Each sheet had to contain 3 tints of the same colour; blue, yellow/orange, green and another colour of my choice. From these sheets shapes including leaves, grasses, flowers and a sun had to be cut out and arranged on either a white or blue background. The combination of shapes had to have movement and life while retaining simplicity. Glue was used to put the artwork together.
Here's what I came up with:
While doing this assessment task, I did a lot of re-living of a paper sculpture project that was in my Certificate III course work. For that one we could use pre-coloured paper. Because it wasn't flat, it had to be photographed. I called it 'Harbour' because it is a scene from Sydney Harbour.
