weekEND 12 to-do checklist

  1. Review [p9] building mood; building with value handout
  2. Complete Found Color [phase 1] 
  3. Measurements: 4" x 12" Color Relationship: Monochromatic {one color + shades + tints} based on one of the colors chosen for your overall color scheme 
    Materials: Free color swatches, scissors, exacto knife and new blades, clear drying glue, modge podge, 2 copies properly sized Xerox or laser copy of image, 4" x 12" masonite board, single hole punch (optional). 
    Technique: Transfer or securely modge podge source image to surface. Collage thin rectangular slices and simple shaped pieces of your color swatches (monochromatic- -one hue, many values) to the surface based on source image values. You will cover the entire piece of masonite with this collage and have the option of coating the surface with modge podge, matte medium or gloss medium when completed.  
    Frame: PICK UP WOOD + BRING TO NEXT STUDIO [~12' in length and 1 to 4" wide and 1-2"thick] You will build a cradle frame, so the piece extends off the wall. The depth of the frame, along with the treatment of frame’s surface {paint, collage, stain, natural} is up to you. Mentors will help cutting the wood and advice you on frame building.  
    Label BACK: your first + last name, must be on the back, not the front of work  
    Timeline: Mini-critique over phase one, Nov 19/20
  4. Hand Created Color Library
    Preparation for Torn+Mixed Color [phase two]
    Measurements: 12" x 12"
    Color Relationship: Monochromatic based on overall color scheme. Do not use hue used in phase one. 
    Materials: Several bristol paper sheets, and other experimental paper surfaces, masonite, acrylic house paint SAMPLER (~$3 at hardware store, Walmart, paint store) that matches your selected color, variety of mark making/texture creating tools (as in mark making) and a couple of cheap brushes, clear drying glue, modge podge or matte medium, wood glue and wood for framing, NO SCISSORS! 
    Technique: For your selected color create a value library of varied surface treatments. Each swatch should be ~6x6 on heavy weight paper like bristol. First generate a series of at least 5 tints, one pure hue, and 5 shades by mixing your color with white and black acrylic paint. Create a second series (at least 10 swatches) of value explorations that are varied due to implied surface texture (think mark making) treatment. TEST + EXPLORE -- Thick, thin, textured, expressive, watery (wash), as well as a variety of values {tints=adding white; shades=adding black} with in your color palette.
