Art Circle is approaching this vast subject through observation. Like any other process available to make visual art, colour has to be seen to be understood. This week's experiential session set the ball rolling. We looked at work by Warhol, van Gogh, Hockney & Turner; we discussed how colour can transform the meaning of the work and how limited pallets can make an impact and we experimented with coloured objects and coloured card. We also began working from a still life.
The work made was incomplete and although I wasn't going to include them, the group has moved on so they are below too with some of resources we used plus Itten's colour wheel.
