Watercolor and Wire

PaulKlee

For our second class we looked at the artwork of Paul Klee who stated, “A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.”  To create an abstract background for our drawings I showed the class a few watercolor painting techniques including wet on wet, gradient, dry brush, and using salt.  While we let our paintings dry, we experimented with aluminum wire.  We twisted, bent, curled, and wrapped our wire around itself.  After creating our three-dimensional sculptures, we drew our wire using lines onto our backgrounds in the style of Paul Klee.
