Architectural Piece

Isaac, Year 9

  • Painting
  • A2 portrait

This is a building by Frank Gehry the Architect. I started with an A3 sheet of paper and my teacher Mrs Howes and she set up different stations where you stuck different pieces of paper like tracing paper, sugar paper, tissue paper and used cardboard squares to dab some yellow paint on. Now we have the background, then we outlined the shape of the building on the A3 piece of paper, then I went over the line in a thick black pen, next I washed out the lines with water. I used square cardboard pieces to dab white and black in places depending on the light. Once I had done that, I used a thin layer of white to go over the skyline over the top of the building to give it the light.
