Creating Pop Art
In the mid-fifties of the last century inpainting emerged a new direction, which was based on the use of popular images in a modified form. One of the most famous works of pop art is the four colorful portraits of Merlin Monroe. Let's figure out how to draw portraits in the style of pop art. To begin, prepare:
- 2 jars with aerosol paint;
- material for the stencil (thick paper or film).
- Prepare a canvas, primed and stretched onstretcher. Buying ready-made canvas, you will not engage in routine work that does not guarantee a good result. Time will also be saved. The size remains at your discretion, but the most optimal are the options 30x40, 40x50, 50x60 or 60x80 cm.
- Decide on the color of the portrait. Pop art is minimal, so only 2 colors are used: light and shadow. The light should be the brightest and blend well with the shadow. Cover the canvas chosen for light with paint, without forgetting to work the ends. Make sure that there are no white spaces left on the canvas. The paint layer should not be too thick, it will make it difficult to work in the next stages. Leave the canvas to dry for 10-15 minutes.
- Also for work we need a stencil forshadow. The color of the background performs the role of light. In order to create a stencil, upload a portrait photo in Photoshop. We find the tab "Image" - "Correction" - "Threshold". With the help of the engine, we correct the image, focusing on our own artistic taste. If the facial features disappear faster than the hair or background, select the area of the face with the Lasso tool and perform a step change in the threshold. First, adjust the face, and then hair, background or clothes. That's how they paint art on the computer.
- Print out the stencil and cut out the black areas. Attach the stencil to the canvas and secure it with various weights. Paint the balloon dark areas. Allow the paint to dry and then remove the stencil. You have a beautiful portrait in the style of pop art.
