This painting is for Theme Thursday and my tribute to Kenson, and below are the photos from her class. On the second day of the workshop, Kenson had us do a collaborative painting as an excercise to loosen us up. After setting up a still life, she told everyone to bring over our medium of choice and sit in a circle.
I brought a tube of magenta paint, a piece of black and white scrapbook paper, and a gluestick.
Then we passed around a piece of paper, taking turns painting, pasting, or sketching for about a minute each. We did this seven times so that everyone would have a souvenir to take home.
This was the painting I was lucky enought to get to keep.
It was a wonderful activity. I was anxious, at first, but, as soon as my brush touched the paper, I forgot my nervousness, and got into the process. To me, it was primarily about composition. When I looked at each painting, I tried to add what I thought the piece needed. And I think I can safely say that, based on the number of paintings I've finished this week, Kenson was successful in getting me to loosen up!
