Monochromatic Painting

Monochromatic Portrait of a celebrity you admire

Prior to this project, students learned about color theory and created a color wheel identifying SHADES, TONES, and TINTS. The student will use a single primary or secondary color and mix it with white and black to change the value of a color. The students will focus and demonstrate the Elements of Art (Line, Shape, Value, and Color) and the Principles of Art (Balance, Contrast, and Unity).

Monochromatic, Shade, Tone, Tint, Value,

Portrait (9" x 12"), Mat board (11" x 14"), Pencil, and Paint

The Process
Step 1
The student will reference and draw the portrait on the mat board using a pencil.

Step 2
The student will identify and map the values (light, medium, and dark) with a pencil.

Step 3
The student will begin painting the background, followed by the body/clothing, neck, face, and ending with hair.
