Lesson 24: Design Game

The challenge: Create an abstract beginning with a magazine food photo. Cut or tear a magazine photo of food into roughly 3" section. Choose 3 or four and glue to a sheet of watercolor paper.

Here Jan has glued on four sections randomly. Next find a way to connect dark and light shapes.

Here Leslie has begun working out a design by connecting red areas with a ribbon and dark brown areas with angled pieces. The goal is to match colors so closely that in the end one cannot tell which area is photograph and which is painting.

Theresa has her design further along. Using the color palette of the photograph creates a harmonious design.

Marilyn was able to match the reds and greens to form a fractured image.
