This week, I am thrilled to be taking a three-day workshop with Sue Benner through my art quilt group. I've never had the good fortune to have a class with her before now, and I'm really looking forward to it. The workshop will be on abstraction ... so we have been given the task of bringing some pictures to work with, and will go from there.
Conveniently, this has coincided quite neatly with Bob (my brilliant lawyer boss) being away for 10 days. So I'm free to to have fun without worrying about work.
Meanwhile, I thought I'd post some color exercises I've done lately on complementary color schemes (Brenda, note the "e"!). It was fun to put these together.
I've been doing color exercises in a journal, collecting color bits from photos to capture various ranges of hues. It's simple, but it IS making me look at color with a different, more conscious eye.
