Use your knowledge of Non-Objective Design and color theory to create a non-objective, geometric based, monochromatic painting.
Process: When you complete a step put a check in the box next to it.
- On the back of this paper create a rough draft of your design
- Use the width of the ruler to create a border around the edge of your paper.
- Create a non-objective geometric line drawing
- (Non-objective art defines a type of abstract art that is usually, but not always, geometric and aims to convey a sense of simplicity and purity).
- Use watercolors and sharpies to create your final design.
- You will pick one root color to use, then use three different values of that color in your project.
Where should my initial idea come from?
- A realistic image that you transform into a geometric line drawing (see the image of the dancer to the left)
- Looking at Art work from artists such as Kandinsky and Malevich, who were Russian constructivist painters and pioneers of non-objective art. (See Kandinsky – Composition VIII, middle)
- Geometric Tattoo design: Sacred geometry refers to patterns and designs that are found throughout nature. (see bottom right)
