Paul Gauguin is also know for being an artist friend of Vincent Van Gogh and after the two of them got into a fight and Paul Gauguin moved away to Tahiti. There his art style changed. He stopped using colors realistically and instead used colors to invoke a feeling, choosing to paint a portrait using red when feeling angry or blue when feeling sad.
The art project given to us was to take a tropical scene and us color to invoke a feeling in the picture. So we all got to work in creating our masterpiece
|Firedrake's picture, she wanted to show a wind storm|
|MarioFan wanted to show a peaceful starry night|
|I always join in with the children and I was trying to show the colors of a sunset against the trees, sand and ocean|
We had fun trying this strategy but we all had difficulty not using realistic colors for our scene. Something we need to work on.
