4. Since the poem is based on the idea of Infinity I decided to incorporate space in my project. After watching a few videos on YouTube the next step is to find a cup that it a good size for your planet.
5. Make sure all the colors and supplies are lined up close by, it dries quick! I don't have a photo for this but spray your favorite colors on one spot of the canvas and dab crumpled newspaper on it to give texture, place the cup on top when you are happy with how it looks.
6. After spraying black around the cup I painted the whole board. I lightly used blue to give space some more depth (spray further away from the board.) By spraying white painting on your forefinger you can flick stars onto the canvas. Then I blended red, orange, and yellow spray to give it some light.
Let it completely dry for a bit.
After I let the background dry I penciled an outline of a tree then proceeded to fill it in with color. The poem contains imagery of plants so I decided to use a tree to represent that image.
After I let the first layer dry I filled in the trunk and branches with darker colors and added some leaves. L'infinito discusses past and present seasons so I only put leaves on the left side of the tree to represent that idea.
11. First I layed down a layer of green and yellow to the hills and hedges. In the poem Giacomo Leopardi describes himself as sitting on a hill and looking out onto the distance. I added another layer of color to the hills, dark green hedges. and the mountains on the horizon to create more depth.
