ATV Part 3 Project 2 Exercise 3.3

Watercolour studies

The aim of this exercise is to help us gain an understanding of opacitities of colour through observation and recording of transparent and semi-transparent objects.

To do this I collected a range of empty glass jars and a vase and presented them as a small still-life display. I then created a series of striped palettes based on the colours I could see within the glassware with watercolour crayons as I did not have watercolour paints with the colours I needed.

I’m not sure I did this entirely successfully as looking back on the requirements for this exercise I feel I created more of a colour palette rather than a striped interpretation of the still life. Re-reading the exercise I don’t think I correctly represented the proportions. This is an exercise I may need to repeat especially if the striped designs are required for future projects.
