Vance Kirkland Dot/ Splatter Painting
This is my second year doing this project and I'm excited that every year when I re-teach an old project that I get better at it and therefore the results get even better to.
- I gave my students a PPP on Vance Kirkland's work and techniques.
- They began by choosing a Harmonious Colour Scheme .
- -SPLIT COMPLEMENTARY
- Then they began by painting their entire canvas with one key colour.
- NOTE*** All colours must be originally mixed by each student. they are not to use the colours directly from the paint containers.
- Once the canvas was dry they splattered watered down acrylic paint from baby jars. (Splatter booths were made in order to keep things tame and to keep the area clean.) The colours they used to splatter must be from the colour scheme they chose.
- The next step: The splatters act as a map to help guide them in their dotted design. They began creating dotted patterns using wooden dowels.
- They must refrain from creating their own pattern and they have the option of keeping their new dotted path ways thin or thick depending a=on the splatters that have already been created.
