i really like going class as it is always good to hear the fundamentals again (and maybe a different way than i have hear before). some of the concepts are easy to pick up on and other things are more difficult.
the class was watercolors and i don't always paint in watercolor- mainly because i have a hard time mixing colors and getting what i want and understanding what is a light, medium or dark.
day one we started with a sketch and value study (which i am finally getting better at)- but, then i am supposed to transition into color and that is when the whole thing falls apart. except....this time, i did understand maybe just a bit more. i had heard that concept enough that my brain finally understood what the heck i was supposed to be doing. (thank goodness.......) these are a few pics from Mark's lessons.
here are the results from my lesson (this was actually my second value sketch- as my first one, i missed on....again.....):
day two and three were abstract painting. here is a sample- i like the layers and small details.
