local color

i got smart this week and ate most of my sandwich before class.

last week i waited, and then we didn’t break until 8:30.  i was worried i was going to have to start nibbling on my water-color crayons.

it was a good class this week.  we got to pull out our paints and work on a color wheel.

although i was excited about painting, i was a little nervous.  i wouldn’t really call myself a painter, and it has probably been 12-13 years since my last color theory instruction!  fortunately this wheel wasn’t too intimidating, and i had a good time playing with all the lush colors.

next time we start drawing and begin planning our big painting.  i felt myself getting highly resistant to the talk of color theory and using a limited palette.  i am not sure why the idea of using only three analogous colors and a compliment bothers me, but it does.

we shall see if i behave or not.  heh heh heh.

    our resistance to some things in art tells us a lot about ourselves. i remember when i was doing the art therapy course and we were told to paint with a fine brush. that made me so frustrated i thought i was going to explode. strong feelings arise with seemingly small tasks and it makes you wonder.

    i like how you made sure the frog (sitting in the fountain) got in again this week.
