Watercolors inspired by Michael Craig-Martin

After observing and commenting on the works of the contemporary artist  Michael Craig-Martin,  each student in grade 8 took a picture of five or six small objects that represent his personality, his interests and preferences. The photograph had to encompass a series of scattered objects, taken from above on a white background, with framing that included all objects or parts of them. The photograph was then traced with carbon paper on a white sheet. The drawing obtained has been colored with watercolor, with solid and bright colors inspired by the style of this amazing British artist. The contour lines of the objects were then redrawn with felt-tip pens to bring out even more shapes and colors.
