This post will talk about one particular student whose artwork deserved to be commended. She's 14 years old this year. Despite having alot of subjects to study for the mid year. She gave her time to prepare for her Art. I knew she has not acquire much observational skills for drawing or knowing painting techniques. However, she's a deep and sentimental thinker. She never fails to make me be awed and inspired, myself, when she came out with this awesome and creative concept.
The topic that she has chosen is Natural Beauty. Her mindmap branches to words such as Natural that is further broken down to nature and Beauty. To assist herself, she wrote, "What is beautiful to you?" Just by looking at her mindmap, I know that she has a very interesting approach ot the topic. Take for example, she wrote down the shooting star as something natural and beautiful. But she did not stop at that, she further wrote down about meteorites, which is something not many people realise the beauty of shooting stars comes from an ugly rock.
This is the mindmap and I have highlighted certain words in it
Through her mindmap, she has chosen sunflower, as the subject for nature and the idea of shooting star to depict beauty. Next picture is her sketches. I asked her to refere to Vincent Van Gogh and George O Keefe instantaneously when she told me bt sunflowers. But on shooting stars, that is something new. I asked her to explore compositional possibilites for that. And she dilligently did it.
As you can see, she tried different possibilities in her composition ie. make the sunflower bigger as focus or draw lots more meteorites etc. And lastly, a picture of the colour scheme that she has used. Who can ever believe me if I tell them a 14 year old thought of this though provoking concept for her topic of Natural Beauty. Sunflower as the main subject of beauty complements with shooting stars to enhance or to make people realise that there's an ugly side to every beauty. To end of this post, something for you to ponder. Sunflowers are beautiful flowers to many but to farmers they are weeds that will grow uknowingly in their crops.
P.S It would certainly be great if she can show me her final artpiece which she had done for her mid year soon. Good luck and Good job Mingfen. =)
