Although I’m still struggling with this, I found this article from Seattle Artist League on blocking in helpful. Some good example images.
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.
A while back, I went to a local library to get out some art books, and this one caught my eye. When I got home and opened it, I was blown away. Probably not the kind of art I want to create, but I love it. And it was beautifully presented in the hardcover book.
Here’s a short video on José to give you an idea of what he does. I love how he sometimes jumps off his ladder to make a mark. 🙂
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.
I enjoyed picking up two (or more) colours on the brush and making marks with them.
