Medium: Gouache paint, bristol paper, apple

Faculty: Emily Barnett

Prompt: From close observation of an object, paint a minimum of 20 patches of color. Develop an abstract design or pattern and draw two same designs on a paper. Paint each design using a different combination of colors from your color palette.

First, I created a color palette by observing the color of an apple. Then, I drew out the abstracted designs inspired by the shape of an apple and painted them using the color palette I made. The colors are distinguished by analogous colors as the design above has more reds and pinks and the bottom has more greens and yellows.
