Working with Composition

I decided to use some images from google to create a good composition before creating a painting.

First of all i drew out the idea roughly in my sketchbook, i drew this one based on the yellow brick road from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ (1939)


I then roughly drew it out, added a little colour and added some images of the food i imagined creating the assets in the image such as lolly pop tree’s, ice cream hills, candy floss clouds and towers made from the likes of rolo’s and fruit pastels.

I then painted out the idea, keeping in mind it was a very quick concept to get an idea across, and not a detailed, beautiful piece of art.

this ice cream hills made me think of making a world from ice cream like the image below…

after i created this, i realised the proportion was pretty awful, but it still visualised an idea that was later developed into something much nicer and aesthetically pleasing.
