LI: To create a art containing a silhouette.
For this Summer Learning Journey task, we were asked to create an artpiece using silhouettes. A silhouette is the shadow of a person, animal, object or scene represented with the color black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is featureless, and the silhouette is usually presented on a light background, usually white, or sometimes with a different color.
For this artwork, I decided to do a woman with a bun-like hairstyle in the light and dark shade of a color.
One thought on “Silhouette Art”
Kia ora David,
Woah! What an awesome piece of artwork you have created here, tino pai!
Thank you for writing such a detailed description of your artwork and the process, it was great to have it explained in your words.
I love how you have chosen varied shades of colours, it really makes the woman stand out! It also reminds me of pop art done by Andy Warhol. Have you heard of him?
If you were going to do another silhouette artwork, who would you do? Do you have a favourite singer or actor you would want to trace and draw?
Look forward to hearing back from you!
