Greetings my newfound travelers with me into the deep dark wood of painted glory.
Welcome back fall by making a painting about the memory of what we leave: summer.
Bring some fragments of your tales and journeys under the high sun and turn them into a painting.
Here I use a local artist named Bunny Harvey, who happens to have a retrospective at the nearby Davis Museum – I highly recommend checking out if you have the chance, it just opened. Great example of representation slipping into abstraction in painting.
So be inspired and bring in a photo, or summer sketches or maybe some collected leaves and hone in on the balance (or unbalance) in your composition. Use sketches to work out a composition and play with space.
