BROMMER WORKSHOP DAY 2!

Today we worked on 3 different design compositions....BRIDGE....T....and CRUCIFORM.  You can easily see how one builds on the other.  We were to select 2 colors plus black and white.  Today we were to build direction with color.  I was working on top of an old painting that I cut up.  It had a dominant red tone so I picked the red family and yellow.  We spent part of the morning painting Japanese washi papers in our color choices.  I brought a lot of my previously painted tissue paper to the workshop, so I have lots of choices to work with.  I like my bridge painting the best.  I see a figure in there.  I am going to make some fine black drawing lines in there to pull out the image a little better.   Everyone is doing exciting work and there is lots of inspiration for future paintings.  Here is Day 2 Student work Slide Show.  Enjoy!

Oh, what a fun workshop. I love to do one with G.B. I think I'd like your bridge going horizontally, I really like your, T and crusiform, too. Thanks for the slide show.

I do see a face in the first one but that third, the cruciform, is my favorite - gorgeous color and darks and it's a winner!

It's always a treat to see all of the different ideas that develop in a workshop-thank you for taking the time to put this slide show together, as well as those I've enjoyed seeing in the past.

Wow! I forgot all about this. I'm glad I thought to check in tonight. I think I like your bridge design best, and I like the muted colors. But I also like the way you incorporated a figure into the cruciform collage.
