Class, Day 1
So I have very little training in painting (negligently little, really) and I am taking an adult ed class whose focus is to learn to mimic an artist or movement that we like. I picked Odilon Redon, because I love his dreamy "Cyclops." So I will try and learn to handle paint more expressively and use color more relevantly. Here is a pic from my effort on day 1.
My teacher laughed a lot when she approached my station, first of all because it was messy, and yet I was not creating enough space for my mess. Also, I was not using a real palette but plastic cups, because I am used to using whatever is on hand.
