Room 24 visited the Vincent Van Gogh exhibition on Tuesday and chose a piece that appealed to them. In a directed writing response they were required to justify their decision and explain, through use of ‘word choice’ how the piece made them feel and why. Here are some of their responses:
Chaitanya - Room 24:
My favourite piece of art was Amelia’s from Room 18. She did the sunflower piece, I liked it because the sunflowers were smudged and they were round and small. She made the piece her own design and she used warm colours. Amelia bunched up the flowers so it looked like there were lots of flowers. I think she did it like this because I think she wants you to understand that not all the pieces will look like the original and that there are different ways of using your imagination.
She painted the background and the pot and the flowers but the flowers looked crayon. Great technique!
Olivia R - Room 24:
I liked Jamie’s artwork who is from Room 15 because he did the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh’s bedroom. I love the way he made it look 3D, he also inspired me to do what he did.
I thought that his picture looked exactly like the Vincent Van Gogh’s that he did. James used good effects. It makes me feel like doing it, he did individual strikes and individual dots to make it stand out. James used the exact same colours as Vincent did.
Harriet G - Room 24:
I liked the painting of the cherry blossom tree from Kara from Room 18. It had bright explosive pinks and dark browns. It was made using a paintbrush. She has been using very good colours for this painting. The painting makes my mind blow. It makes me joyful as well. I describe it as a mind- blowing painting with the rich colours. Kara used the colours to blend different colours like the pink with the white. She did it that way because it makes it look appealing for others who went to the exhibition.
Lachlan - Room 24:
I like the vase from Room 12 by Macy. I like it because the way the two colours blend and interact feels natural and feels like it fits. It makes for an interesting piece of art. The way the colours are used is a marvel and the detail is immense. The pallet used is an amazing contrast. They used the pallet in an absolutely astonishing way. The clearness of the painting makes it incredibly easy to make connections and hard not to like. I think the reason they used the colours that they did is for a natural but modern feel. The blues, greens, blacks and yellows used make it an absolutely fantastic contrast of colours. The positioning not only makes sense but is intriguing in a way that draws you in. It is a delightful piece and changes the way I see art forever. The yellow is appealing to me and makes the painting stand out and blows my mind. Any person could like it, even if it is just a glimpse.
