#Week3 – #Painting and #Resolution of Work, #Modernism. #Plein Air too?

Week 3: Art is the Product of Process: Art is the product of process: Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

We are going to retrieve our Sol LeWitt COLOR images and work 4 of the patterns up into final preparatory images for out final 9” x 9” wooden panel. Which of your COLOR ideas are you happiest with and WHY? In the sketchbooks you will RECREATE your images – VERY CAREFULLY AND THOUGHTFULLY with Colored Pencils and Watercolor Paints – focusing SPECIFICALLY on a color scheme that you will be able to identify to me. Then we will move it up to the wooden panels.
