Inspired by Paul Cezanne, The Lac d’Annecy, 1896.
We picked this painting because the scenery invited us to look closer at the different textures and shapes. During our research we found out that Paul Cezanne painted the lake at Annecy because he was bored whilst on a break in Haut Savoire, near the Swiss border with his wife and child. He went on this break to escape the industrial nature of the city. It was this and the unconventional painting methods he used to create this painting that inspired our animation. We used thread wrapped around pins to create a busy city, which fades away into a landscape recreated by using pencil shavings, coloured water, gravel, and moss.
