Extend an Image
Updated: Mar 23, 2021
This was our brief:-
Your challenge is to use this image and extend it!
Print off the image and attach it to your canvas/paper/board - in any orientation and anywhere on the surface.
Extend lines, shapes, colours in any way you want to produce a "new" image - figurative or abstract.
It is a tiny part of an existing painting, but try to make it your own.
This was the image members used
The snippet was taken from Paul Gaugin's "The Yellow Christ
My interpretation of the snippet of picture you sent us.
I’ve worked it into a photo I had of walking along a walkway at Barley Cove in Co. Cork Ireland. The boat is the brown bit from your picture and has been ‘borrowed’ from Dungeness!
Honister Pass, Lake District
Watercolour, pen and ink
270 x 200 mm
My 'extended' watercolour (with the original extract supplied in the top left hand corner) fills just over a quarter of the whole piece in the bottom right. This was scanned, printed in different sizes, mainly with the colour desaturated, and all the images mounted overlapping each other behind the original.
Mindful - Pastel
Not sure about the quality of the outcome, but producing it was a very relaxing, mindful experience!
Acrylic on gessoed board
Pencils and biro
I kept turning it around till I found something.
Not very good though I fear ..
I have to say that it was very difficult to make anything of the ‘scrap' you provided — I concluded I had no imagination but anyway here is my try and believing it is somewhere in the style of the real picture.
Bubbles over something
A Triffid maybe?
It was a very difficult piece of painting to integrate
