Commission Preparations

As part of my Foundation Degree, I have to find and complete a commission.

My commission is to create a mixed media large canvas for a christian bookshop and cafe. I am working with the board of trustees and they have asked for something which will be uplifting and link with the theme of HOPE. 

My first considerations have been connected with colour. I want a colour scheme that will touch the emotions of peace and positivity.

Here are some experimentations in my sketchbook. Blues and greens are colours associated with calm, tranquility and peaceful harmony. Pastel shades are also more pleasing. 

I love using texture in my work, so experimented with layers of coloured tissue to see what effects were produced when colours are placed on top. The semi transparent nature of the tissue allows the colours underneath to show through.
