Lock and Chain with
6 inches by 6 inches on an 8 by10 inch illustration board
This project required students to paint either a triadic or split-complementary color scheme on an original design.
I used the blue-green hue and one tint and one shade of the hue on the padlock. Neutralized pastels and tints of yellow-green fill the chains. In the background, one shade and one tint of red create a stained glass window appearance.
In part one of this project students chose an image and identified the colors in the image and proportions of those colors.
Concept Art for a Rock Band
Executed with hand drawings, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop
Part two of the project required the students to compose a new, original image using the same colors in the same proportions.
For my project, I chose a poster from Back to the Future that was packaged with the film’s DVD. I used the same colors in my concept art for an imaginary heavy metal band.
Because this artwork is fully scalable, Planet Metal can use it in a wide range of media for promoting their tour, “Brutal.” as well as DVD and other related merchandise sales during and after the tour.

The dyadic chord of blue-green and red-orange fills this composition. The artwork uses two shades and one tint of blue-green. In addition, it uses three shades, one neutralized pastel, and the chromatic hue of red-orange. This composition illustrates contrasts of hue, saturation, and temperature.
