Jane Davies online class 'Extreme Composition' is awesome, and really making me work. Have just completed Lesson 2 (of 7) and here is my final composition so far....
The first lesson had us doing exercises in variety of line, and relating those lines to a painted background. The second lesson added shape to the mix, leading us on an exploration of varying shape and line in a composition .
This is my very first real online workshop, rather than just a demo, but it certainly wont be my last. It's hard to believe that this is as good as a REAL workshop...but it is. Lots of work, great critiques from both classmates and teacher, and you get to see and comment on everyone else's work.
In the process of just the last two weeks I have a studio full of painted papers, all destined to be part of future works...either cut up or reworked. Fabulous!!!
Another five weeks to go....busy, busy, busy...and happy, happy, happy.
