3D Design, Drawing, Building, Painting

Working on themes of architecture, drawing and building and 3D design, this artist began with building a structure out of blocks. (Thank you to the Corley's for their wood scraps:)
Above she draws a diagram of her structure to help remember it, also great practice representing relationships among the different overlapping pieces and mapping space by drawing.
She begins to reassemble, adding glue to hold pieces in place.
The final stage begins with painting - using liquid watercolor which seeps in like stain combined with tempera paint which behaves more like paint, drying on top of the wood.
The finished house - notice how the color choices highlight significant shapes and angles in the overall design.
