this morning we warmed up with some more quick two minute drawings. this week i put just a few lines down zooming into the figure.
among other things, we were told about the book 'the art of color' by johannes itten - apparently the bible on the theory of colour.
we then discussed 'saturation' and had to paint this still life grouping with only one colour - using water to dilute the acrylic paint to create the lightest and darkest shades. an interesting exercise!
