This class should be a little lighthearted fun, so put down what you’re working on and come play with us! I have a challenge to give you. In class I’ll hand you a photograph, or should I say a 5x7” part of one photograph, which you can paint in class. Did I mention that the photo is not in color? Oh yeah, you need to make it your own. The fun and challenging part of it is that your little painting needs to respect the values you see in the photo, and catch the divisions of space fairly accurately, so when we assemble them together it makes one whole painting that fits together.
Let me show you an example of one the class did several years ago, which we printed and used as an invitation to one of our class shows. It really was a fun experiment and made a surprisingly successful collage.

So come prepared to take up the challenge and play along this week. Bring along your increased scale paintings from last week to share in class, whether you’re completely finished or not. I’d love to know what you thought of the exercise.
I hope you enjoy this class!
Keep going, gang,
