Art classes: week 5

My messy, colourful table at Browne

It’s taking me longer and longer to post these because the exercises I’m working on between classes are taking longer.

Last Wednesday, we finally got to work with paint. This is what I’d been waiting for.

Vincent’s stars

Vincent's stars

I wasn’t sure whether I liked Van Gogh’s paintings to begin with, but the more I’ve studied them, and the more I learn about him, the more I do. In fact, I love them now.

I thought I’d have a go at a section of The Starry Night to see whether I could replicate the style/brushstrokes, and I really enjoyed it. I might do a copy of the full painting at a later stage.

Pegs—in colour

Pegs

I was tempted to avoid painting this, because I found the pegs hard to draw (and I thought I’d stuff them up painting them), but I’m glad I didn’t. The colour in the photo’s not quite accurate (what looks like a red peg is actually bright pink), but you get the idea.

Colour play

I enjoyed picking up two (or more) colours on the brush and making marks with them.
