Grid Painting Project


This project focuses on:

  • reproducing and enlarging an image with the gridding technique
  • mixing colors to approximate existing hues
  • painting using techniques of drybrush and layering of colors
  • recognizing that a single image can be combined with others to create a complex composition

Assignment: Reproduce a part of a famous painting, matching colors and brushstroke. Use the Gridding technique to lay out the image. The section you reproduce may be combined with others to re-create the entire painting.
