Shade and Tint Gum Ball Machines with Wayne Thiebaud



DISCUSSION: How do we make colors lighter
pink, clouds, light
Tint adding white to colors
How do we make colors darker?
Black: shadows, shade
Shade: adding black to colors
When light hits an object it becomes lighter
If an object has no light it is darker

ARTIST: Wayne Thiebaud 
(born November 15, 1920) 
He is an American painter 
whose most famous works are of cakes, pastries, boots, toilets, toys and lipsticks
He is associated with the Pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culture,
 although his works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists. 
Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects
well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.
