What a good idea - lots of possibilities!
Lesley and I [Hannah] tackled different trains at opposite ends of the still life, with different mediums. Lesley said, 'I nearly didn’t submit this. I started drawing Ian’s toy Thomas the Tank Engine in pen, then let my imagination take over using Indian ink and red wax crayon.
Proportions and perspective way out....'
The idea is that we look at paintings and consider the compositions of these and work with them in various ways. We will finally look at one of our own paintings/drawings and analyse that in the light of what we have possibly learnt.
You will need to bring a pencil, tracing paper, paper, sketchbook, ruler, paints and one of your own works with which you are dissatisfied because of the composition. Hopefully we all have one of the latter!
You can also find these details on the Stop Press page [Hannah]
It was good to get back into the EAG routine, and to see everyone after the Christmas break. Next week Elaine is in charge of the still life and model and Noreen will be manning the Blog, so send your work to her. Have a good week!
