Gorgeous deep blue and orange abstract watercolor painting from a previously taught art workshop.
Art Workshop Abstracts
This sample of a student’s work from the workshop, was quite exciting.
A bold blue and orange painting with a wonderful fun and experimental quality to it. The student used Yupo paper with prussian blue, white, permanent rose and winsor lemon.
- The tonal values were lovely with a full range of light, mid and darks.
2. The Warm balanced the Cool, yet…. the Cool (Blue) remained the Controller. The master, Dominant temperature.
3. There was a clear, evident focal point. Our eyes wander on up to the left to the swirl there. Which is in the appropriate location for a focal point.
4. Not much action, detail, contrast, ‘frou frou’ is happening along the borders. She kept the energy, the action, details heading inwards. Towards the Focal Point.
I love these types of courses:
- Loose and Free
- Inner Artist comes out
- Wabi Sabi
I don’t know who gets more enthused from these workshops…. the students, or myself!
