Fun in Art Class

We mainly worked with colour and composition yesterday.  This teacher has chosen an environmental theme for her subjects this year.  Last time we painted containers and before that, a pile of newspapers.  This time we chose from photos of beach detritus.




We analyzed the photo as to which colours were present and in what percentage, then painted just strips of colour in that percentage of a sheet of paper.  Next we painted ordinary pieces of paper in those colours, hopefully in sufficient quantity.  Then we cut or tore these pieces so as to compose.




Next we chose which one we preferred to paint.






I had to time to do a second one in a small format.




≈ 10cm square


I am not particularly inclined to paint abstractly.  Usually it somehow turns into a flower.  I think this time I avoided that. 🙂

My classmates found my work to be poetic.




About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    An interesting way of working – it certainly makes you think outside of the box (or frame ;-)).
