tuesday morning. i have been asking myself lately why on earth i didnt take this course years ago. i am enjoying the coffee breaks too.
this lesson we continued with colour and more specifically, complementary colours. the exercise was to paint the 3 primary colours and 3 secondary colours on the page so that they are all of the same value. when you look at the paper all colours are equal and no one colours stands out more than any other. harmony.
we then took a five minute walk to the tel aviv museum of art.
our teacher showed us some of his favourites in the permanent collection. we talked about a pierre bonnard painting, a monet and a picasso but his favourite in the whole museum is a beautiful painting by morandi and i could see why (similar to this one but each one is unique).
i was so excited so hear him talk about these works. i was also introduced to two new (for me) artists. one of them is avigdor arikha whose work i just love - reminding me of lucian freud.
the other artist ori reisman. wonderful contrasts in work.
another fantastic morning.
