International Academy students created these contour line hand paintings. We began by creating contour line drawings of our hands. A contour line is essentially an outline that defines the form or edge. These were then transferred repeatedly onto a larger paper. Students needed to arrange the hands in a way to make a good use of space. Once complete, these hands were painted with watercolors and blended. Students were assessed on the form of the hand, the use of space and the blending of analogous colors.
