NARRATIVE PAINTING ASSIGNMENT – Grimm’s Fairy Tales – Let’s Use THIS link and you can choose your own Fairy Tale. Think about the imagery that comes to mind and work up a FEW sketches so you are READY TO ROLL with the painting when we come back.
- What are the strengths of the piece?
- Where are you still struggling with your painting?
- What is the FOCAL POINT and how are you using the composition to draw the viewers eyes around the composition.
NEXT TIME… This is important to think about as we begin our last days of working.

- Are your marks specific and intentional?

- Finally – look at the edges of the picture plane and make sure that you are dealing with the edge, the corners, the sides?
