This brief involved the interpretation of a piece of text called ‘Leaning From the Steep Slope’ – Italo Calvino. It was my task to produce three images, scenes or compositions as a response to the text. I found this piece of writing quite heavy, as I struggle with reading I only began to understand and imagine ideas once Anna had read it out aloud. It was very difficult to imagine myself within the place and connect the appropriate use of colours to my work.
The colour project was started with a series of workshops. Focusing mainly on colour I re-capped the basic colour wheel and primary/secondary colours. Doing these small exercises really expanded my colour vocabulary, i was able to produce select colour palettes and visual risponses to follow through into my end piece.
