More assignments from 13 Problems

The weeks fly by and the assignments pile up. As I work on the final assignment, I’m trying to understand what I’ve gotten out of this workshop. For me, with an illustrator background and spending more recent years enjoying the rush of plein air – I see how too readily I make compromises to meet a deadline or beat the sun. This workshop and the studio time slows me down to a pace where close enough is not good enough.  Each of these assignments has a specific problem – and we are searching for impossible solutions. The process encourages a necessary critical eye.

Another week, another assignment 

Drapery, knife only, minimum size 16×20,  using no more than 6 color tones and simplify! (and the 2 darkest areas aren’t quite so black in reality.) I’m thinking about pursuing an intentionally wrong color.
