I've have so many realizations in her class and am really enjoying the many challenges she offers. Here is some stuff so far.
This is where we started after creating a grey scale then a scale in umber.
A monochrome painting.
Then we set up for a Blue and Orange Painting
Here I'm formulating the idea. It really doesn't look like much.
This is not the final painting. Haven't taken a photo of the final but the shadow is much better.
We also did scales for Blue and Orange. Then we did a full on Color Wheel.
Next we moved on to Red and Green or Yellow and Violet. I was still working on my scales for Yellow and Violet so this was all that was left in the props box. So I got Yellow and Violet.
Then the fun started with introducing Glazing Medium. So we played with glazing medium on our monochrome paintings.
Just when I felt like I was building a little confidence. She introduced Gel Medium. I really like the gel medium because it allows for blending on the canvas but has a totally different feel on the brush and will take some getting used to.
Then finally we used Gel Medium and painted exclusively with paint knifes! Way different feel but a whole lot of fun!!
Any way I'm loving life right now and learning so much. My creativity is taking off and I do have other things that I have been working on to show you. So I will sign off for now.
