Color Grid 2.0 Paintings

img_4939“Color Grid 2.0” paintings are now on exhibit in the Media Center. This series of paintings examines the use of primary and secondary colors along with tints and shades of each color. Students mixed all colors from scratch except for the primary colors and applied them in a unique and creative composition. 


For many, this project represented their first paintings with full choice and development of composition. Some used reference images for inspiration, while others spontaneously developed patterns and designs.

Students were encouraged to explore brushstroke techniques and to explore the various strengths within the standard flat, filbert, round and liner brushes.


Next up: something much bigger! Stay tuned!
