Study of Wave by Michelle Bogash
This week I had a really tough decision as to which student’s painting to post. I narrowed it down to two. The assignment was to do individual studies of waves, and then to move on to a study of a composition with rocks and waves. The above painting, by Michelle was a really convincing wave. She got all of the elements involved in the anatomy of the wave. I’m completely buying it!
Study of Rocks and Wave by Carolyn Davis
This study, by Carolyn, was really lovely and the photo does not do it justice. I don’t know why there is a diagonal pattern to it. Be sure to click on it to enlarge it, and it looks a lot better. Anyway, another great job by her. She is an accomplished painter with some interesting Hudson River School training from the east coast.
In general I was amazed by how well the whole class did with this project. It is the first time I have taught this, and I did not know what to expect, but everyone seemed to love it and do well at it. Some of the studies deserved to be posted, but the photos did not translate them well.
No, I have not forgotten that Bill’s last post needs a well thought out response from me. Stay tuned.
