What a great lesson today, great fun for the likes of me! We started with a choice of one of two vacation “snapshots”, provided by Judy. Our assignment was to find what we liked about the source, and what we wanted it to say, then to modify the source to make a well designed painting. We used black and white copies, scissors, tape, tracing paper, plain paper, gray markers in various values, white correction pens and chalk. We rearranged conflicting shapes, removed or modified confusing elements, changed values from light to dark or vice versa. And of course, ended up with a different solution for each of us.
