Fruits of Fauvism: Concept board + New project

Concept Board - Fruits of Fauvism (Images from Pinterest)

I'm now officially a second year at university and what better way to start than with a new project. It's up to me to pick my own concept and theme - concept = idea, theme = what I will draw; that's the simplest way to think of it I guess - so for the concept I chose Fauvism, which is an avant-garde movement in which the "works emphasized painterly qualities and strong colour over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism" (thanks Wiki) and for the theme I'm drawing fruit. I chose fruit because there's lots of colour to play around with and since mark making is also a huge part of my work I kinda feel like fruit has a lot to offer in that area what with all the different textures and such.

Inky fruit


So here are a few things I've recently started on, who knew that rolling around pieces of fruit in ink and stamping them onto paper would be so amusing? I think to really emphasize my concept I should definitely try some painting if I can find the time. Being bored over summer is not an option this year and I definitely made sure of that from the beginning; now I feel like I'm latching onto as many free days as I can find!

  3. I definitely didn't know that those style of painting were called Fauvism! I actually really enjoy those types. The colors are absolutely brilliant, and if anything, I guess I fall into a Fauvism style!

    I'm interested in seeing what you come up with in the end! :)
