Reverse Painting

Term: 4 Year: 2018

This unit began by looking at the artwork of Australian artists Rosetta Santucci, Nikki Perzuck, Jill Lewis and Gus Leunig.

We focused on their use of shape, colour, pattern and the reverse painting technique.

Over the term, we:
Sketched abstract designs in books
Painted the complete background of the paper, focusing on colour and pattern
Sketched designs onto the painted paper with chalk
Painted the background white so that the colour from the designs ‘pop out’
When dry, wiped off any chalk to reveal the colour behind.
