October 11TH: A Seaside Vignette
We will work from this painting that I did some time ago. I hope you don’t take offense to the non-originality of the work being that its “not your creation. I have attached the image here. The intention is to have you work loosely and randomly accept where shapes require definition. Note the brush strokes that carry color and texture in the grasses, allowing some wet into wet mingling. See how the boat blends into the white paper, but unless pointed out, you don’t notice it. Normally, there would be a color for water behind it showing your eye that edge of the boat. If you are not comfortable drawing the boat as shown, perhaps a side view would be easier. What about the house on the hill? That could be a lighthouse alone, or add a lighthouse tower to the structure? Some of it, if white, could connect to the paper in the sky area. How can we use this as the basis for another painting design? Are you brave enough to perhaps put a figure bending over the boat unloading the cargo? ( I happen the have such an image) This figure could be related to the distant figures clamming off the shore. Now, I think we might be getting into more than we can complete so lets keep it simple. BUT, before class, see if you can imagine some options for the design. “What could it be?”
I will email the attached image to the group. The painting will be, if you choose, 11 x 7.5 or one-half a quarter sheet. I will work a bit larger for your viewing.
See you Friday the 11th.
NEXT CLASS DATE: Saturday the 26th. I will be away the 18th through 20th.
