We spent all day Saturday doing exercises to explore materials, mark- making, color combinations, properties such as staining and granulating, and the interaction of wetness, paper and pigment.
|Bethany worked on a dog portrait.|
|Michael did several paintings using a big brush technique.|
|Kate worked on the subtle gradations of color to create this beaded jewelry.|
|Priyankar took a step away from his usual work as a chemical engineer.|
On Sunday, each student came prepared to work on a personal project or two to put their new skills into practice, and we shared and critiqued the days work before heading home.
A big thanks to each and every student for sharing your talents and enthusiasm... teaching this class was a pleasure!
|Stephen had a great view as he worked on painting puffins.|
|Barbara used washes, salt, and resist to complete her paintings|
|Fred did 3 paintings, including a monochromatic landscape that had great impact.|
|Richard worked to improve his watercolor skills for the natural science illustration certificate.|
|Amanda used blues, violets and roses to create wet on wet skies.|
|Rayne used resit to create wheat colored grasses against a dark blue sky.|
|Mandy underpainted layered washes to create space, and planned to glaze colors next.|
|Here is is after Mandy finished glazing the colors on at home.|
|Gloria used Derwent Inktense pencils to add texture to her abstract painting.|
|Donna dropped colors into her background wash to add interest.|
