Your painting media will not stick to it. Use a thin coat of white glue, like Elmers. Make the triangles lie flat and secure.</p></li><li><p>Use the visual clues in each triangle to generate shapesthat become motifs and patterns. Lightly draw in pencil.</p></li><li><p>Think about which parts of the triangles will become the objects and which parts will become the background.Positive SpaceBackground</p></li><li><p>Start to overlap the designs to create visual pathways for the eyes to follow throughout the artwork.</p></li><li><p>This was created by an 8th grade student ages ago.</p></li><li><p>The sizes of the motifs should change as they create paths of movement. The motifs should look like they move further away and move closer, like stepping stones in anti-gravity space.</p><p>Jaimie Shing AP 2D 2011-2012</p></li><li><p>Repeat motifs to create rhythm and pattern.Jordan Moore - AP 2D 2011</p></li><li><p>Use overlapping to create a sense of depth in space.Use repetition to create harmony and unity in the composition.Priscilla Pun - AP 2D 2011</p></li><li><p>Katie Randall - AP 2D 2011</p></li><li><p>Can you find the three original triangles?</p><p>The composition bleeds off the edges of the picture frame as if we view a small portion of this other worldly place.</p><p>The repetition and size changes of the purple and pink motifs create the illusion of depth.</p><p>Olivia Park - AP 2D 2011</p></li><li><p>Allie Ng - AP 2D 2011</p></li><li><p>Rules of this game:</p><p>1. Try to make the triangles disappear completely.2. Match the colors and values accurately.3. Draw lightly first. Fill the paper space.4. Apply watercolor paint to the entire composition. Test the colors on scrap paper first.5. Once dry, go back into the work with colored pencils to adjust tones, textures, and details. Work gently, layering the colored pencil as you go.6. Do not draw on the triangles or alter them in any way.</p><p>I hope you enjoy this project. </p></li><li><p>Arshiya Lal - AP 2D 2011WOW !</p></li></ul>
