I'm taking a workshop that Julie Prichard is doing on Abstract Art. It is called 8 Great Paintings..I really was surprised at how much I like it! The freedom of not have a sketch to follow or being really controlled in what your painting is so foreign to me since I am such a control freak!! But I found it very freeing and sooo much fun!! There is a lot of blending you do with your paints that I really enjoyed so far.. So much your arm get's very tired.. LOL The workshop is done very well with Julie showing different techniques as she does 8 paintings. I am really enjoying this workshop..
Also strange to me is not working with a lot of color.. I'm a color freak too! LOL Using browns, black and gray is also freeing to me.Or just two or three colors. I don't have to grab my color wheel all the time.. decide my palette and think! LOL I am just putting various shades and tones of the same color.. How much fun.. I didn't think I would enjoy that but it seems this is a different side of me. Who knew? LOL
Here are three pieces I have finished so far.. I like the last one the best..
My Camera did a lousy job of showing different values.. There are big differences it didn't pick up.. I wonder what setting I need..
I'm joining Paint Party Friday this week.. Check out this fabulous blog and see some wonderful artwork.
Hey you all!! Thanks for stopping by.
