During this first week, we visited the galleries and picked our favorite works. Continue to keep these in mind as we work and see if you can start to see something in your own work that is like the work you picked. Understanding what speaks to you will help you put that element into your own.
I think we agreed that it might be beneficial to see what are the differences and similarities in media. So, next week I'll be bringing some oil paint, watercolor and acrylic to demonstrate for you and help you determine which might work best for you.
We'll also be setting up a still life of objects and working with form and shadows. So bring the media you would like to start with and a support (canvas or paper). It should be fairly small as you'll be working ala prima and creating the painting in one setting. Bring one object that you would like to add to our still life.
As always, those who have more experience and want to continue work on something they have started should free to do so.
