I have another star
baker... this time it's Derrick who, like many folk, doesn't realise how lovely his work is.
- using three colours make swathes of simple shapes across the page
- decrease their size as they go further up the page
- strengthen the colours of those nearer the bottom of the page
- add stems from the colours with a downward mark
- add grass with upward marks
- if using water-soluble colour pencils, add water to the lower part of the work
This process gives a sense of distance - a simplified approach to perspective.
I suggested cropping Dorothy's work but on reflection, I think the original works better.
We started the session by looking at van Gogh's gardens and fields which inspired Ken to work using pattern with great success. Brilliant!
Again, inspired by van Gogh, Mabel decided to make a plant. The marks and colour were deliberately chosen to resemble fire.
