    • Name: ________________________________________________ Block: _____________ Studio Art Dorofy/Duckworth/Gordon/Sanders Watercolor Landscape Painting WATERCOLOR: Paint made with a water-soluble binder such as gum arabic, and thinned with water rather than oil, giving a transparent color. Traditionally used in a light to dark manner, using the white of the paper to determine values. Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors. LANDSCAPE: Art that depicts natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, and especially art where the main subject is a wide view. TASK: For this project you will be creating a landscape painting that includes the Element of Art: Space – specifically focusing on creating depth by using foreground, middle ground and background. WHAT YOU WILL DO: 1. Learn about and practice watercolor techniques and processes. 2. Research and print landscape reference images. As you look, think about what type of landscape you want to create. Things to take into consideration… a) Differences in terrain, climate, vegetation, wildlife, etc. b) Is there any architecture? c) Is there a strong foreground, middle ground and background? 3. In your sketchbook, create 4 different compositional sketches and develop a color plan using your landscape images as reference. You should use more than one reference image when creating your new composition. 4. Once you have planned your composition and shared it with the teacher, then you may begin to work on the final paper, making sure that you draw VERY LIGHTLY with your pencil, just enough so that you can see your elements in the landscape! REMEMBER: dark pencil lines will show through on your watercolor. 5. When your drawing is on the final watercolor paper, then you may begin to apply watercolor using the techniques discussed and practiced in class. Make sure you are referencing your color planning as well as making use of test strips and other tools to help you while you apply color. 6. After you have applied all of the color to your landscape and it has dried, you may go in with colored pencils to add fine details if desired.
