This was another art class where Margie dumped this huge selection of shopping goodies together and we had to paint it! Enjoy colour! Play with colour! I am not a colorful person and found this project very difficult! I sort of cheated and started with an almost black background which helped a bit. I don't like the result and find it slightly disturbing. Not a comfortable painting,
2012 is my year of creativity and learning. I have been out of the blogging world for 5 months now all because I have been working very hard! Still life is not my favourite subject matter, but I started classes with Natalie Hirschman at the beginning of this year and this was our first class subject. I am learning so much and changing so fast it is mind blowing. I love it.
You say that you are not a "colour" person, I also thought that about myself - I have worked on it, I believe it can be studied, practised and experimented with, it is not just something one is born with, it is a technical skill that can be acquired. What really helped me was to work with a very limited palette, one red, yellow, blue and white and get mixing!
Anyway, your painting is not at all disturbing!
