  1. 1. Picture Book Illustrations<br />Works of Art in Color<br />A look at Paul O. Zelinsky’s Rapunzel <br />
  2. 2. Let’s think about colors<br />Colors can convey a feeling or emotion in illustrations and in the world around us. <br />For instance, how do you think these colors make you feel?<br />
  3. 3. Red<br />Tell me some things that you know are usually red.<br />This is one of the objects a lot of people think of when they think of red. <br />Why do you think stop sign are red?<br />To catch a drivers attention<br />To warn the driver<br />Red can also convey an emotion or feeling. Can you tell me how red makes you feel?<br />Angry?<br />
  4. 4. Red<br />Hungry? Spicy?<br /> In Love? Passionate?<br />Many other emotions can be conveyed with red. Thank you for all the answers you shared. Now let’s move on to another color.<br />
  5. 5. Blue<br />What are some things that are usually blue?<br />Maybe you thought of the sky?<br />When the sky is blue how is the weather?<br />Calm<br />pleasant<br />How does blue make you feel?<br />Relaxed?<br />
  6. 6. Blue<br />Sleepy? Calm?<br />Cool? Refreshed?<br />Let’s think about one more color .<br />
  7. 7. Yellow<br />Name some things that are yellow.<br />The sun is yellow. What are some descriptive words about the sun.<br />Bright<br />Glowing<br />What emotions are conveyed by the color yellow?<br />Happiness?<br />
  8. 8. Yellow<br />Vibrant? Lively? <br />Excited? Energetic?<br /> These are just three of the many colors we can see. <br />Colors all convey feelings. <br />Can you tell me another color and what emotion you think it could convey? Now that we have thought about colors and their meanings; lets get started reading the book. <br />
  9. 9. What does color tell us?<br />As we begin, our reading of Rapunzel by Paul O. Zelinskey I want you to think about the colors he uses. <br />Remember that an illustrator can use any colors he wishes in his drawing but chooses specific ones to help tell the story. <br />WHAT IS HE TRYING TO CONVEY WITH COLOR?<br />
  10. 10. Rapunzel<br />As I am reading I will stop on certain pages to discuss the use of color. I’m going to prompt your thinking as we go, so get ready to enjoy.<br />Let’s start with the title page: Does Zelinsky use bright are muted colors in his drawings?<br />Muted….Why?<br />Perhaps to convey a sense of realism <br />What are your ideas?<br />
  11. 11. Rapunzel<br />Let’s stop on the first picture of the sorceress.<br />What color choose do you see here?<br />Why is the sorceress dressed in dark colors?<br />Do you think the contrast between the dark sorceress and the brightly dressed husband has any meaning?<br />Tell me more of what you think? <br />
  12. 12. Rapunzel<br />Now lets look at the illustration of Rapunzel playing as a child. <br />What do you see?<br />Why do you think Zelinsky drew Rapunzel with red hair?<br />Maybe to show her vibrancy and youth.<br />The color of the sky, does it convey and emotion?<br />
  13. 13. Rapunzel<br />Lets look at the picture of the sorceress and Rapunzel inside the tower, as she cuts off her hair.<br />Why do you think the sorceress is wearing red or orange?<br />Do you think it conveys her anger?<br />What does the gray color in the sky indicate?<br />
  14. 14. Rapunzel<br />Let’s look at the last picture, of the family.<br />What do you think the deeply colored clothes represent? <br />Prosperity?<br />There is a lot of green in this picture, why do you think the illustrator did this?<br />Perhaps to convey a sense of “new growth” and a fruitful life? <br />
  15. 15. Wrapping it up<br />Rapunzel is a beautifully illustrated book with many different artistic elements. Today we only explored one…color.<br />I hope that as you read picture books you will think about the use of color to convey meaning.<br />
  16. 16. Your assignment<br />Think about your favorite color.<br />Draw at least three objects that are usually that color. <br />Write about the emotions, feelings or ideas that can be conveyed with your favorite color.<br />
