my class did the topic of the Romans Miss Procter and
I used one of Paul Klee's pictures as an inspiration for
these pictures of Roman artifacts. The artifact was drawn
in pencil on the large sheet of paper first. Then the
paper was divided up into different sized rectangles.
Rectangles inside the artifact were painted in a yellow/orange/red
pallette. Rectangles outside the shape were painted in
a blue/green palette. To finish the picture off, and make
it look more like Klee's, a piece of wood was used to
stamp small rectangles all over the paintings.
