Make a still life when you look at the artificial cubist design that explores shape, pattern and texture. Use the three items you selected early in the day, but this time around just use level forms, easy outlines and habits to depict them in a still life. Check out ideas.
- You can draw a simple overview associated with things onto brightly coloured or patterned sheets of paper such as for example magazine or wrapping paper. Cut these shapes down and collage them into the still-life
- Take into account the bad shapes (the shapes left into the paper once you've cut your item out of it). Could you add these to your still-life?
- Look at the shadows created by the objects. How can you make these shadow shapes an element of the work?
- If your objects include text or figures (for instance the title of a novel or a brand title on trainers), usage numbers or letters cut from a magazine or paper
- Don’t be afraid to mix news. Utilize charcoal or wax crayon to draw shapes or details over collage. Utilize paint to cover level bright places, or to add texture or design to your still-life.
