dynamic gesture resource material
Other things on the home-front are keeping me from my usual painting practice in the past few weeks. Let us just say, consequently when I do have some time to paint, I've been feeling completely out of ideas...blocked! not a good feeling. I know this happens to us all and I also know it passes, so I've tried to embrace the temporary lull in creativity.

resource material in old family photos
Anyway all I can say is this workshop has been just what the doc ordered, something different and challenging.
Here's the two unfinished works in progress that I've been working on today on the easel in the classroom. Donna's structural approach, simplifying the compostion to just 11 interesting shapes, I find quite fun.
In the first image I'm working from a black and white magazine photo(you can see the image taped under the easel). The second one, I'm working from an old black & white family photo (yours truly in the yellow cardi). I'm less happy with it's composition, but I hope to play to resolve it. More fun tomorrow!
