  1. Answers:
    A1: The objects in the pictures arn’t easy to see and are squashed together. You can see bits and pieces and reognize what they are but it isn’t very clear at all.
    A2: They are very different from ‘ordinary’ paintings because the artist has merged individual little pictures into one big masterpiece.
    A3: I would describe the colours as quite dull but it has a good affect, as it can make the picture look old. The brushstrokes look smooth in places but as if it has just been dotted and dabbed in others.
    A4: If I did a piece of cubism work then I would try to make an affect that the artists above have made. I think I would try to make them more colourful than the above pictures but I love the way these are individual little chopped up pictures and merged together into one. I would try and do something similar to that. I think it is something that I would like to have a go at.

  2. 1. The objects in these paintings are easier to see close up, however I find the “Portrait of Ambroise Vollard” easier to see from further away. Its face shape looks clearer from a distance.

    2.These paintings are different from “ordinary paintings” as their detail and objects are shown through straight lines and cubes rather than curving lines and different shapes.

    3. The colours and brush strokes used in this painting are dark and are painted either using a vertical, horizontal or diagonal stroke. The colours used are not block colours but have been painted so they blend in with each other.

    4. If I were to create a piece of cubism artwork I would first sketch out the basic shape of the object I was painting and fill it in with different lines. I would regularly view my artwork from far away to make sure the object was easily visible.

  3. Q: The titles give us a clue as to what is in these paintings. How easy are these objects to see?
    A: When I first looked at the pictures it was hard to see what they were, but then when you found out the name of it you could make out what they are.

    Q: How are these paintings different from an ‘ordinary’ painting?
    A: These paintings are different from ‘ordinary’ paintings because the picture is hidden and you have to look hard to see what it is but with other paintings you have a clear veiw of what it is e.g. like a pot of flowers.

    Q: How would you describe the colour and brush strokes?
    A: I would describe the colour as dark and gloomy because most of the colours are : black;brown;silver and dark orange.
    The brush strokes look like they are dark and then the have faded when you follow were it goes, like the paintings that we did in class (Matisse inspired waist-coats).

    Q: If you had to create a cubism artwork, how would you go about it?
    A: I would draw somthing hard to see e.g. a pair of eyes inside a big mash of dark colours.

  4. Answers:
    1) I found ‘Violin,Glass,Pipe and Inkstand’ by Picasso difficult to see any objects but I could see the objects in the other two paintings. I think without the titles I would only be able to find the objects in the Violin and Jug painting.

    2) These paintings are different from ordinary paintings because in most paintings you can tell what they are straight away but the cubism paintings are a bit like a puzzle to find out what is hidden in there. They also look like seprate paintings joined up together insteaad of one big picture.

    3) I think the colours are natural and not very bright to make it harder to spot the objects because they blend in. The brush strokes look like they have been dabbed on with the brush and are not smooth, long strokes.

    4) If I had to create cubism artwork I would choose which objects I would like to be put in and then draw them in and put squares around it and then paint in natural, muted colours.

  5. I think that the objects in two of the pictures, ‘Violin, Glass, Pipe and Inkstand’ and ‘Violin and Jug’ are not easy to see unless you look at the pictures closely. I think the ‘Protrait of Ambroise Vollard’ is difficult to see close up but it is easier to see from a distance.
    The paintings are different from ordinary paintings because they are painted by using many straight lines.
    I think the colours are very similar and not very distinctive. The brush strokes are mainly shading of the shapes.
    If I had to paint a cubism painting I would first draw out the painting normally and then draw over the objects with straight lines. I would then paint the shapes in.

  6. 1.The objects blend into the background and don’t stand out at all. You can only see the objects if you look very carefully. The middle picture-this one is the easiest to see you can see a mans face but you still have to look carefully to see it.

    2.The shapes are hidden into the picture. The pictures are partly abstract unlike some other paintings. It is hard to see was going on in the picture and there are other things going on in it.

    3.The colour on the art works are musty dull and gloomy; colours like dark green, black and grey. There are smooth,simple and single brush strokes

    4. I would pick one main object and then paint lots of different random objects behind it . I would make sure I painted it in dark greens, black and grey.
