24x20 watermedia on paper
not for sale
Today was the first day with the fabulous
It was very interesting because her
goal is to make us think in a different
viewpoint from our regular work.
We start by making a collage from
colored magazine papers assembled to fit
an abstract view of a specific image.
Here is mine.
I really liked this method because it provided
color and shape inspiration.
I soon found out what did NOT work
regarding color or shape. Saves a lot of time
messing it up later...with paint!
It was not easy, but I noticed everyone
in the class turned out really good work.
People, pets, a fabulous
beetle and truck...
and abstract landscapes.
I think it is the planning that takes
place for that first step which helped us all.
Changes took place automatically
as the work progressed but the basic
design stayed in place.
2. Transparent washes
4. Watercolor crayons
I don't want to give the impression it was
easy because I worked all day on this image
and there are still some areas
which I am thinking changes may take place.
I will wait and think about it.
