Abstract Acrylic Painting on Black Paper
As an introduction to the unit of work “Pattern and Abstraction” the students created these artworks using a variety of lines, shapes and colour to construct a painting. They drew with white oil pastels on black paper to create the structure of their composition. They coloured with acrylic paint. The children explored and created their own colours, by using using red, blue, yellow, magenta, and white. They also learnt about the opaqueness of the this type of paint.
The students created portraits with coloured textas, focussing on using a variety of line to describe facial features. The students then used paintbrushes and water to activate the texta into a watercolour effect. The pictures were then reworked with additional drawing when dry.
