Summer Art – Picasso’s Enamel Saucepan

Jug Candle and Enamel Pan Picasso

Jug, Candle, and Enamel Pan

This last week of our Picasso study will help us to see the shapes he used in creating his unique artwork. Follow the link above to view the artwork on your computer screen. Point out any triangles you see, any rectangles, and any organic shapes (shapes that are not geometrical). Make sure to notice how many shades of blue Picasso used in creating the mood of this painting.

Materials Needed:

  • Poster paints or watercolors
  • Watercolor paper
  • Brushes
  • Thick black marker

Use a ruler and the black marker to create interesting shapes on your paper, making some geometric and some organic. Then using your paints, fill in the shapes with shades of one color or just one or two colors from your palette.

You can create your own still life painting or copy Picasso’s if you want to, changing things to fit your taste.

Due date to be included in the slideshow: August 4, 2014.
All artists are welcome and there is no need to sign up. Send in your artwork in jpg format to: [email protected]
