One of our first exercises was to make collages for the four elements, earth, air, fire and water. This is my collage for air.
This is earth.
This is fire.
This is water. These were really fun to make.
This was an exercise with mark making while listening to bird songs.
Here we used Oil Pastels to mimic a water lily painting. This is something that takes a lot of practice. I'll need to do a half dozen of these before I feel confidant at it.
Next we did our first landscape. This is still a work in progress. I needs quite a bit more work but I'll add it to this post anyways.
This is what is called a network drawing. The original photo was a scene looking from underneath a flowering bush. I am learning lots of new techniques in the course and of course new ways of looking and seeing.
You can heck out what others are doing on Paint Party Friday here.
