it is all about the light.. the shadows, the reflected light... the highlights!
the key is to look first for simple abstract shapes . Working with a limited pallette was the first exercise
first a limited pallette
then the full meal deal as shown above... then if that
wasnt challenging enough... the next "challenge": to
paint in ten abstract shapes AND use 50 strokes or less!
shopping expertise comes in handy: how to save paint
strokes is just like shopping for "bargains".... CONSERVE
and RESTRAIN.... load up the brush to "stretch" your dollars
and load more than one colour to stretch your strokes! FUN..
this was the result below
at the end of the weekend... a happy bunch below..
