  • A2: Colour Scheme PaintingTask 1: Preparation

    Begin this assignment by choosing a colour scheme to work in. CLICK HERE to see a selection of possible colour schemes.

    Collect/ find images of plants and flowers to use for the main

    subject of this work. Ideally, consider setting up your own flower arrangement, take some photographs using a range of angles/ view-points.

    Choose one of your images/ photos to use for the main subject

    of your work.

  • A2: Colour Scheme PaintingTask 2: Practice

    After deciding which of your ideas you will use for your main outcome, using a new full-page in your sketchbook, create a prep piece. This should be a practice, smaller version of what your intended final work will/should look like.

    Try to be as accurate as possible, and use water-colour

    paints effectively for higher marks.

    Remember to use good process/ technique, for example working from the background towards the foreground, using a range of tones, and including fine line using stronger colour/ tone for the details.

    Use/ apply the colour scheme that you chose throughout your


    If you are unsure about your results, try using an alternative colour scheme and/or subject/ image.

  • A2: Colour Scheme PaintingTask 3: Final Outcome

    After you complete your prep work, you should then be ready to commence work on your final/ main outcome.

    Collect a sheet of A3 (size) paper. Draw a 1cm border around the inside edge of the

    paper, and add a title, date and your name/ class name.

    Lightly sketch-out your work, working directly from your prep piece.

    Improve the sketchy line by adding/ using a sharper harder line.

    Remove your previous sketchy lines. Add paint/ colour using good process/ technique. This final outcome should take approx 2-3 lessons

    to complete in full. Take your time, be careful and accurate.
