More color collages

Standard

Here are three collages for a lesson in Jane Davies' color online class. The first is the monochrome:

I used green blue and blue in this, as well as black and white, and the partly hidden letters are blue neutralized with orange. Mostly paint with a bit of cut paper and some doodling with watercolor crayon.

Here's an analogous piece:

This started with a green blue background and then a green and yellow green island appeared. All paint. I think I'll add some even lighter tints to the 'island' although this isn't as dark in real life as it appears.

And here's a complementary collage. I had a hard time finishing this one. The pinkish circles were bright red violet to start but that seemed too intense (even for me) so I knocked them back and now…they need something. Texture? Fine detail? So this is probably NOT finished!

Back in color

Standard

Yes, I've been MIA, but there has been action behind the scenes, as I'm enrolled in Jane Davies' Unlocking the Secrets of Color class. Fun! Here are the pieces I did for the latest lesson. I love Jane's classes; I always learn something, which is more important to me than I thought it would be when it came to art.

My favorite first, kind of like dessert first 😉

 

Those were the complementary pieces. Here are a couple of the monochromatics:

 

 

I started an analogous piece, but like I said in my workshop blog post, it's due for an extreme makeover!
