Over the course of this week I have been working on finishing up my surrealistic painting. Painted with tempra, the goal was to create a surrealistic panel that included a macrocosm, microcosom, and Fibbonnacci's "Golden mean" while adhering to a scale of darks to lights. We created a value scale with a white, black and 8 gradients of grey and painted our pieces while also incorporating striations and depicting volume without blending.
I decided to have a theme for my panel which was a country-styled theme. I zoomed in on an apple from an apple orchard, used a farm as my landscape, and painted a cat's bristly tail as the Golden mean. Hopefully I was able to accomplish the criteria needed for this project!
