Art classes have begun again with the young ones. I had two twelve year old girls today, they are going to be fun! We are going to study some “rules” for composition all semester. This painting was inspired by our exercise today. We set up a bouquet of roses I had from last week and used our view finders to crop in on a specific section and then draw that area and fill in the fun negative and positive spaces they make. An exercise I did myself for a whole summer a year ago, turns out it’s still super fun!
Here’s the original sketch I started with: (unfinished because, let’s face it, art classes are NEVER long enough : ) )
And of course > the after class shot. I love the messes we make.
