Still life

Stiil life, originally uploaded by kquilts.

Yesterday was the first day of the acrylic painting class I signed up for. I really didn't know what to expect. First day we were shown an arrangement that was set up on a table. Each side of this arrangement had a very different look. We were told to sketch the side of the arrangement that appealed to each of us, and the teacher walked around the room giving advice. Then she had us crop the image down to what we really wanted to include, and what to leave out. Next we redrew the final image on an 11 x 14 canvas.

This was all that we did on the first day. Next Tuesday we begin painting. I really think I am going to like this class. The course lasts 6 weeks.

I also have started an art journal, but really don't have anything yet to show on that front.
