AT CLASS !!

I am at this very moment, among other things, doing an online class, 'Extreme Composition' with one of my favourite collagists, Jane Davies.

Her work is strong, often very colourful, and has always such strength of design that I MUST learn more about.

For instance:


CRUCIFORM STUDY by Jane Davies

FRESH PAINT #3 by Jane Davies

FIELD OF 'O'S by Jane Davies
This is the first week of six, and I already find I'm pushing my limits. Until I have learned more you wont see any of my class work here.

However, do visit Jane's blog or her website for a real treat.....and, if you can't resist, you can purchase her work from Fine Art America

  5. I'm SO jealous! I took a class from Jane in person last fall and it was great - I'm sure you'll learn lots! I've tried using that cruciform composition in some of my pieces and though I always love Jane's, I've never liked mine....even when I start out thinking to exaggerate the proportions, all I see is a cross when I'm done. I really must try again - that sample is so dynamite! Can't wait to see what you learn!

  6. I love Jane's art and now I own a little piece(thanks to her postcard swap to save the PO)! She was the first one who got me so interested in abstract art thru her blog-and now I have your inspiration too! I'm really looking forward to your projects :)

  8. I spent about 4 hours working on lesson 1 last Friday - glorious exploratory time. I feel I have barely scratched the surface of the exercises. then life kicked into overload and I haven't done any more studies, or photographed or blogged my work, or even visited the class blog. I'm eager to just shut out the world and focus on this.
