In this exercise of Design Fundaments we learned to abstract and conceptualize. I needed to make my grapefruit looked like a work of Josef Albers. I choosed his composition named Portfolio 1, Folder 2 created in the year 1972. I started drawing my fruit until I achieve a middle point between my grapefruit and Josef Albers composition.
- First is the sketch of my grapefruit
- Then a high contrast of the grapefruit to conceptualize
- After that the colors I decided to use for my palette
- And then the final result of the whole excerise
It was not easy to abstract and conceptualize the grapefruit to make it looked like a Josef Albers composition, I liked the result but I could have improved the quality of the final result.
The technique is Gouche over Opalina.
