We started this lesson looking at the work of Mark Rothko and talking about the Abstract expressionist movement, color theory, scale and the properties of oil paints on raw canvas.
For our scaled down project students worked with oil pastels on good quality paper.
Applying the color in layers and overlapping where the colors came together.
The final step was using q-tips and baby oil to blend the colors even more and have them saturate and bleed into the paper.
