Complete the in class activities of identifying the golden mean in the paintings and photographs supplied.
Begin by researching Dorrit Black. Include images of her painting work with annotations. Your annotations should include analysis of Black's composition (golden mean) and her use of colour and technique. Do not retell what is in the image or whether or not you like the painting.
Begin to take a series of your own photographs to use in your final painting. Include these in your sketchbook with annotations. You may compose a fabricated landscape. Eg. Use the photographs from one image and the hills from another.
Here you will begin to experiment with painting techniques and colour matching. Use Dorrit Black's paintings as a reference for the use of colour in your own painting. (Teacher demonstration of colour and technique)
Sketch your composition onto your canvas and complete using acrylic paint.
A 250word practitioner's statement is to be placed in your sketchbook along side your final work.
See "how to write a practitioner's statement" for more information.
