Background Information to a few pieces of art
Colour Wave – Pencil
Hopewood Park’s favourite pieces tend to be the group pieces where several people work on a large piece over several weeks. This was the case with the Colour Wave – Brush collage (see below), that went so well the group created the Colour Wave – Pencil collage afterwards.
Another successful group project involving several people was the Neon Rainfall painting, where we predominantly used Pebeo Fantasy Prisme or Fantasy Moon paints for their lovely textures and effects.
For the Watercolour Landscape project individual paintings were coloured with watercolour pencils and then brought to life with a wet brush.
The Flower paintings were another themed project where service users used watercolour or watercolour pencils.
Family on the Beach & Sun and Palm
We, at Hopewood Park, have an ongoing project which we dip in and out of, where we are creating a collection of individually painted small canvases which will be placed side by side and displayed as a larger piece of work. The pieces Sun Canvas, Cross Abstract, Family on the Beach, repeating Circles and Sun and Palm are all part.
The artist has anxiety and depression and made this with her daughter. She values the positive time they spend creating art together.
The humour element was designed to help with depression. The piece was made with poster paint on canvas and inspired by last year’s AIM calendar.
“Something nice to look at in our lounge which brings us joy. Pictures are windows on the world.”
The 2 year old artist states that “the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ makes me happy!”
