Painting – Week Two

Mixing black and white to create a flat grey.

In Painting week two we looked at creating paintings using white. To start with we experimented using complementary colours to create grey.

Creating grey whilst mixing equal amounts of complementary colours. I used red and green and when the colours were neutralised I added white to create different shades.

Mixing black and grey together created a very flat grey, while using complementary colours allowed the greys to feel more vibrant. Adding different hues to the grey allowed me to reflect the colours within the white object I was trying to paint.

My name is Daizi Davies and I am 19 years old from Cardiff. I like to draw inspiration for my art from my personal life and the challenges I face day to day. I like to experiment with many different mediums but the common link that all my work has is that it is highly autobiographical. My main aim with anything I create is to tell a story and make whoever is viewing it feel something. I am currently studying Fine Art at DeMontford University and I hope to grow as an artist as well as learn new things that will help me in my future as an artist.
