Still Life of Colored Construction Paper


Edited: Dec 1

My latest was made of 3 pieces of colored construction paper. 2 of the pieces had to be complementary colors (the orange and the blue), but we could choose whatever color we wanted for the 3rd (the green).
We were supposed to show how color reflects surrounding color in this project
Ex:
-The green alone the blue "floor"
-The orange added in the left fold on the green
-The blue in the green cavity
-The green in the cast shadow on the orange background


This piece ended up on the "art of the week" wall too :-)
I'm not sure what grade I got on it yet but i would imagine that I got an "A" for it. This class isn't quite as awful as my drawing class when it comes to grades

Wait - I just noticed you said this class wasn't as bad as your drawing class. I didn't realize it wasn't for your drawing class! What is this class?

I'm taking design next semester. Can't wait.

It's from my Color Theory class. We work with paint mostly. The first half of the semester all we did was color wheels and matching colors, now we've moved on to finding local color and reflected color
