It was done as a work for class.
We have to use ordinary objects against an extraordinary background!
Thank you so much!
This was done during my Watercolor classes.
We had to do ordinary elements against an extraordinary background...
I am just sad that the colors are so faded and grayed...
The original watercolor is much more vivid, with whites and much more contrasts.
I loved the Drawtober challenge so much that I searched for a new one, and found the Christmas Holiday Cards project... I find it a wonderful idea, so I decided to join.
But it's not a shack, it's a barn. Or is a barn a shack also?
Our challenge was to take simple elements against a flashy background.
It's just you are very funny.
Didn't get an A+, we were doing to many of them... Mostly studies. What we did get is a lot of +feedback and +critics. No negative allowed, so you really have to think how you want to say something.
They didn't teach Watercolor in Fine Arts !?!
We were encouraged to enroll in classes that were given in disciplines we wished to learn or pursue at different galleries that had masters who gave classes.
So I studied with a master for a year. It was incredible, because he taught by painting himself, while we were all around him. He would paint about 5 or 6 watercolors per seance. After each demonstration of a watercolor, we would try it. It was awesome!
One of my friends studied with a master sculpture, also for a year. And she says she learned more in her year with her master than in her whole BFA...
I tend to agree. They should rethink their methods of teaching and come back to masters-apprentice more.
