In our still life unit, we learnt about different thought perspectives and we learnt shading. This website shows the photographs my group and I took which show our understanding of light sources, shading and shadows. Group Members: Manan and Sanjana
Theme: A five year girl's bedroom at night
Lighting: Right and left
Situation: Our situation was that there was a five-year old girl and it was bedtime. Nobody was at home other than her mom who had slept. She was all alone in her bedroom. Then, she started finding something to do. Soon she starts painting handprints and draws/colours. After it all got messy, she cleaned it up. Later she started reading books. Later, she started talking with her dolphin about her day, and felt sleepy. She removed her car and played with it for a while and then slept.
Background: Pink paper and handprints on the side
Objects: Soft Toys, Toy Car, Picture book, Pop-up book, Toy Phone, Color Pencils, Water Bottle
Analyzing objects in our photo
Now, I will talk about different objects in our photo and a bit about why we chose that particular photo. What does the write up include
- What is the picture about?
- How is the girl's personality shown through the object?
- How does the object relate to our situation?
- How the colours of the object resemble with the girl and the situation?
This picture is a few colour pencils. In our final product, we had used colour pencils because we thought five-year olds like to be messy and like art. We also thought that toddlers like art colouring as it improving their visual interpretation skills. We used a different contrast of colours to show that the girl had a contrast of emotions and used colours according to her emotions. For example, if she was sleepy, she would colour her drawings green or blue as they are dreamy colours. If she was happy, she would use yellow, red, blue and pink. This shows that the girl has a mix of emotions.
This picture is a book called "Peppa Pig and The Fire Engine". We had put this book in our set as it matched with our story. The book/s were the most important as the books made the girl tired and sleepy. We specifically chose this book, as "Peppa Pig" the main character of this book, was designed to entertain age groups of 3+. As the girl in our story was 5 years, we thought this might be a great book for her to read. Also, this book shows the girl's personality. if she reads "Peppa Pig", it means she likes stories which involve small problems and some humour. She also likes animated characters who are unrealistic (for example, pigs cannot talk, but in "Peppa Pig", they talk). Therefore, this book shows a lot about the girl and her choices, which is the reason we chose this book.
