Beginning Watercolor

HI SISTERS ! SOME WATERCOLORS CAN BE A GOOD REASON TO CELEBRATE ANOTHER NEW DAY!

Leslie White

The Beginning Watercolor class also ended this week. I only had three students for this session. That meant we were able to cover quite a bit of material in a six week session.

Gayle Brown2 Gayle Brown2

The first week we learned about the watercolor paper (we use Arches 140lb coldpress right from the start), brushes and practice painting wet on dry, wet in wet, and dry brushing. We practiced washes and compared mixing colors on our palettes and mixing colors on the paper. Their first assignment was to paint a back lit scene.

Gayle Brown Gayle Brown

The second week we learned how to create trees in different ways. This included using a sponge, pontillism and scumbling. I also introduced liquid frisket and showed different ways it could be used.

Kathy Gordon Kathy Gordon

On the third week we talked about man-made objects and buildings, perspective and how to grid our paper to assist with…

Pop up painting!

HI BEAUTIES! LET’S DRAW A HAPPY TRUNK🎨🐘🐘🐘

DESIGNWITHFLAIR

So….pop up painting…I was pleasantly surprised-ish…didn’t know I’d enjoy it sooooo much. Now realise that I enjoy painting in company…thought I was a solitary painter…Let me rephrase that – I thoroughly enjoy painting in company without an audience. It was very group therapy-ish (not really…can’t place my finger on what it was…it just felt right). It wasn’t like a drop in drawing session…there was so much more ambience…it was laid back, not taking yourself too seriously- pure art without performance or perfection-

The aim was to paint after the style of Banksy.

Went with my sis-in-law.

Defo something I might do again!

Most of all…I kept within my budget…managed to not spend a dime!!! My sis-in-law is in Finance and very money savvy. We had tap water with lemon and shared a meal (for one). Not complaining at all – my bank balance…

Abortion (By Paula Rego)

By Rego, Paula – Series about Abortion. Untitled, number 4

Dear Sisters, a few weeks ago I went with a friend to see an art exhibition. I liked it a lot and so did she. A few days later, I went to the same exhibition and that second friend did not like anything. The surprising thing is that the first friend hardly sees exhibitions of art and nevertheless the second yes that usually does it. In one of the series exposed the protagonists were women who were going to abort. Of course, the three of us are undoubtedly supporters of abortion, so that the issue was not subject to disagreement between anyone. The difference was that works were exposed in which the author narrated situations sometimes dreamy and sometimes nightmare. The husband of the second friend who also is a draftsman, agreed with my opinion that his wife had a very literary vision towards art. On the contrary the first friend was with a very open minded and willing to enjoy without any prejudice or condition and as a person with a lot of sensitivity got it without me forcing their natural perception at all.

All this brings me what I studied in the University, about ‘Significance’ and ‘Meaningfulness‘. That is, on the one hand the graphic part that represents and on the other side the represented theme. Sometimes the word and the image can be turned away and some artists can use that as a game. With the first friend we agreed to one of the works in which what we were contemplating did not convey the feeling of what the title would have suggested. For example a title for a heartbreaking situation represented with a style and a treatment of materials and color, delicate, subtle or exuberant. This aspect or game, is of interest to those who are also authors of our works.

In the exhibition there are engravings, oils and other techniques, but in my opinion they highlight works made with pastel by the unusual of its large formats.

Paula Rego, when she is interested in it, is a privileged heiress of Henri Matisse’s originality of color, of Goya’s early expressionism, of Rubens’s strokes, or of the mastery of lights as in the works of the French prince of pastel technique Was Maurice Quentin of La Tour. She is not a simply great artist, in my opinion she is a giant artist.

If you come to Barcelona, do not miss this complete exhibition that will be until  OCT 08-2017 (La Rambla, 99 – Free entrance)

On the Dance Floor — A Dream

AWW SISTERS, SATURDAY ARRIVED. BUT NO PROBLEM IF YOU DON’T WANT A DANCE!🎵🎶🎵🎶LET’S DREAM!

Nightjars & Damselflies

On the Dance Floor.jpg “On the Dance Floor” — C.Birde, 4/17

Please — don’t ask me to dance. Don’t persist when, politely, I decline. Don’t approach me on this moonless night, in this quiet, wooded glade, and dismiss my protests, pull me onto the parquet dance floor.

You don’t understand. I don’t wish to be cajoled or encouraged. I have no desire to be shamed. I lack your surety, your confidence. Can you not see, how my left leg gives beneath me? How it cannot bear my weight? Do my hands not speak of desperation? Certainly, my fingers – stiff and rigid as they are – must bite at the tender flesh at your neck and shoulders, clinging, grasping?

But no – you don’t seem to notice. You weave over the dance floor. Your scarlet shoes brush the wooden, geometric patterns with your light step. You are ease of motion, liquid in style and confidence…

The hope of art: a public artwork at Rhodes University

HI SISTERS ! WHEN THE SKETCHES ARE SCREAMS THAT CAN BE LISTENED BY SARAH ROSE FROM SOUTH AFRICA. CHEERS MY DEAR!

Life is an exhibition

My heart, life and land My heart, life and land

This world constantly breaks my heart, and so I need to make art. It allows me to hope.

I open myself to the heartache in this place. I let it flood my heart and fill my mind until my thoughts are exhausted and I am battered, broken, cracked.

That is when I make art. That is when I remember the beauty of humanity.

 

Can this feeling be shared? Can art be used to give other people hope? Can art help other people exist?

@ShashaSelflove  5/09/17 – Only Tuesday

HI BEAUTIES! TODAY OUR PROPOSAL COULD BE A WHILE FULL OF COLORFUL PEACE. OF COURSE IF YOU WANT. CHEERS!

@ShashaSelflove

What do you mean it’s only Tuesday?! The week has felt a little longer and the most interesting thing about my week so far is that I have quietly stood and just sat in the world around me. There have been some moments of epiphany where I have learned information about myself but I have also learned about others. It’s very interesting too just sit and watch, you learn that you can take in just by observing and sometimes that’s all you really need to.

As we live in this world around us sometimes it feels like we are not of this world. We don’t understand what’s going on but we manage because that’s what we have to do we have to get to the next point in our life. As we navigate through, sometimes we’re the ones that are making a lot of noise and it doesn’t always have…
