|Picasso Inspired Homework piece|
I decided to combine my color homework (week2) with doing a piece by one of the Masters (week1).
I was particularly drawn to Picasso's pieces with the human form.
I found some others he's done too and love them. And they all have a blueish color to them.
Which is without a doubt the color I'm most drawn to at the moment.
I feel a series coming on....
In week 2 of Art Entwined - Misty's focus is on color - something she did with us in Italy.
But by the time I got home I was really struggling with the concept and I felt fearful to practice it alone. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to apply it when I was working alone and without having Misty on close call. To me, there is an art of mixing color.
I see my daughter do it without fear or anxiety.
Like it's something she's just known her whole life - but for me - it doesn't come so natural.
All my colors come ready mixed in a tube... spoiled right.
It's an area in my art I have been really wanting to work on and really understand.
And after months of avoiding these lessons - I feel I'm in the head space to go there.
I feel like I got a bit of understanding of tones and tints in this piece but I def feel I need to do more.
I loved doing this piece though, color aside.
Favorite part for me in the end - the hands and the bowl.
Totally in love!
|18"x24" canvas board - Mixed Media Collage|
At the end of week1 Misty demonstrates a Mixed Media Collage - I'm a huge fan of this kind of creative play. I've been playing with the concept since I met Misty in Italy in 2012. It's something I've grown in. But to me they are my most expressive, fun and creative pieces. Where in myself, I get to break the rules.... have fun and push my own boundaries. And absolutely learn the concept of putting ideas down for potential paintings.
I can't wait to finish this piece and I will share the evolution.
But tonight.... it's back to finishing this piece and slowly ticking off my homework schedule and back to my color tutorials. Have a beautiful day...
