One of your tasks this week for our Elements of Art topic is to investigate lines and complimentary colours. I had a go at it myself and have some pictures of each step you can follow:
- Divide your page into different sections by drawing lines. Decorate each section using different types of lines.
You can use this song to help you find out about types of lines
2. If you have paint it works really well for the background but don’t worry, you can use pencils/markers instead.
When we created colour wheels in class we used the primary colours red, blue and yellow to mix secondary colours green, orange and violet. I painted each section of my page using a primary or secondary colour of my choice.
There’s a colour wheel below to help you.
3. Complimentary colours are colours that look nice when used together. If you look at the colour wheel, you can find complimentary colours directly opposite each other.
Blue is opposite orange; so blue and orange are complimentary colours that look nice together.
Complimentary colours are:
- Blue and Orange
- Red and Green
- Violet and Yellow
When the paint had dried I used pencil to trace over the lines using complimentary colours. If the background of a section was blue, I used orange to trace over the lines in that section. Here’s how it turned out:
Hope you enjoy making your own art using lines and complimentary colours. This is quite a big project that you can spend a while on. Remember, you can try out your own ideas too.
