With the initial 18 ideas which I thought could be developed, I filtered them down to what seems to be more interesting to work with. As such, I started to build my final art works. There wouldn’t be much talking, so let the pictures do the talking!
Cutting potatoes up into shapes just like how we used to do it when we were younger.
Here’s where the fun part comes in. Putting in the colours!
I have to admit that it wasn’t easy to actually achieve straight lines using potato slices.
Putting colour onto the shapes which i cut prior to the actual painting process.
TADA! Nope, this is not the final piece. This is just 10%(?) I left this to dry so that I can continue with other colours without smudging them together. So next up, making the frame!
After measuring a suitable size for the ‘frame’, I proceeded to cut out 4 sides of the ‘frame’ and then used wooden laminates to wrap it, to simulate a wooden frame.
And the ‘wooden frames’ are done! After this part, the black paint have dried already, which means I can continue putting in the other colours.

Alright, done with composing the artworks! As for the other 5 images, they were more or less digitally illustrated, I would reveal them in their final form in the next post. Till then!
