the art class: winter/spring 2014

Finished! Another 10 week block of the art class I run here in a tiny village by the wild Scottish sea in the middle of nowhere, 3 hours on a tuesday, for non-professionals of all ages, through the long, wet, grey and cold winter/spring. Mixing colours big time; another version of teaching the colour wheel? Looking at light source, light, mid and highlights and tones, cropped compositions while practicing form and those tricky ellipses. Edging into exploring abstraction by the end. An epic body of work, a great series of colour studies using my huge collection of plastic bottles with ceramic vessels as inspirational subject material. Funny what can inspire! We started in natural grey light with Morandi as my inspiration…
