Transcript of Fauvist Landscape Project

Les Fauves (French for The Wild Beasts) were a short-lived and loose grouping of early 20th century Modern artists whose works emphasized exaggerated color, as well as simplified use of line, shape, and form. An art critic gave this group their name-- it was not a compliment!

Fauvism was the first of the major avant-garde movements in European 20th century art. While this art was initially considered to be shocking, it was to become extremely influential in the evolution of 20th century art.

The leaders of the movement were Henri Matisse and André Derain.

Andre Derain
“St Pauls Cathedral from the Thames” 1906.

Fauvist Painters

...and for the visible brushmarks which add to the overall design of the painting.

Fauvist art work is noted for it’s use of very bright, non-realistic colours....

You will be working with Colour Theory and the Colour Wheel.
You will be learning about the Fauvist Art Movement and borrowing their art techniques.
You will develop and refine your skills in these techniqes and create an exciting painting of a landscape.

Why were they called ‘the Fauves?’

and by the work of Vincent Van Gogh

Derain was born in 1880 and died in 1954

One of the main artists in the movement was Andre Derain.

Fauvism started at the beginning of the 2oth Century

Claude Monet – “Impression – Sunrise”

Fauvist artists were inspired by the work of the Impressionists

Bright Colours
The colours have been distorted.
Large brush-marks.
The artists simplified what they painted.

What are the characteristics of a Fauvist painting?

How have the colours been used in this painting?
What can you see in this painting?

Why has the artist done this?

Cold colours in the background

André Derain
London Bridge
Painted in 1906

Cold colours recede.

Warm colours come forward

Warm colours in the foreground.

How are these paintings similar?

Warm colours

Cold colours

In this photograph you can clearly see the warmer coloured areas in the foreground and the colder colours in the background.
Fauvist artists used the idea that warm colours come forward and cold colours recede in their paintings to help them show depth in their paintings.
The Thames and Tower Bridge
Painted in 1906-7
André Derain
The bay of Martiques
Painted in 1906
When colouring the wheel, shade the colours from light to dark from the centre outwards – press harder then gradually decrease the pressure.
When colouring the Secondary andTertiary boxes, make sure you blend your colours together neatly. Use crosshatching to help you achieve this.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this session, you will be able to:

Warm colours:
Come forward in a picture

Cold colours:
Recede (Go back) in a picture

Warm and Cold colours

Understand what Primary colours are.
Understand what Secondary colours are and how to create them by blending.
Understand what Tertiary colours are and how to create them by blending.
Understand what complementary colours are.
Understand what harmonious colours are.
Understand what warm and cold colours are.
Make a colour wheel using all colours.

The Colour Wheel
Fauves Landscape Project
In this project:
Complementary Colours
Are opposite on the colour wheel. These can also be known as Contrasting Colours
The red based colours are known as the
Warm colours
Why do you think this is?
These colours tend to come
forward in a painting.

Do you know why?
The blue based colours are known as the
Cold colours
These colours tend to go backwards, or 'recede' in a painting.

Do you know why?
Why do you think this is?
Warm colours: Red, Orange, Yellow come forward in a picture.
Cold colours: Blue, Green, Purple recede in a picture
To sum up:
Complementary Colours
are pairs of colours opposite each other on the wheel.
These can also be known as Contrasting colours.

Harmonious Colours
Are next to each other on the colour wheel.
Primary Colours
Key non mixed colours.
They make up all the other colours on
the colour wheel.
Secondary Colours
Are mixed by combining two primary colours.
Tertiary Colours
Are mixed by combining primary and secondary colours.
Yellow and Purple

Can be both warm and cold
colours depending on how
they are mixed.

Add a little red to yellow to make it warm and a little green to make it cold.

Add a little red to purple to
make it warm and a little blue
to make it cold.
Colour Wheel Task
Trace the colour wheel outline into your books.
Colour in the areas in the correct order.
Set your page out with tramlines for a colourful title, your colour wheel tracing and writing guidelines
Fauvist artists wanted to exaggerate this idea in their paintings
'The Trees'
- 1906
'Collioure' - 1905
Charing Cross Bridge
' - 1906
London Bridge
' - 1906
'Develop' Targets
1: The Fauvists used bright colours in their paintings. Improve your painting skills by choosing and mixing your colours well and not letting them get too pale or muddy.
2: The Fauvists used clearly visible brush marks. Improve your painting skills by copying the brush marks that Derain made in your artist copy.
3: Improve your writing by using specialist art vocabulary such as 'foreground', 'background', 'warm', 'cold'. Make sure you have written your own thoughts about how you can use the artist's ideas in your own work.
4: Improve your painting skills by keeping control of the brush and painting carefully inside the lines you have drawn.
5: Improve your presentation by drawing guidelines with a ruler for your writing and keeping your writing neat.
6: Ensure all work is up to date. You need
to come at lunchtimes until all
sketchbook work is finished.
