What are 2 things that stand out to you as areas that are WEAKER in nature and require additional efforts. What is 1 thing you are REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO this week?

Elaborate with examples from your paintings. We looked at the different types of compositions (8?) and then went out and painted, how did looking at the various types of compositions help you develop (or simply be more aware) of the compositions you set up today?

Click HERE to Listen to the 7 minute interview from NPR with Richard Dibenkorn and take a look at how Diebenkorn breaks up the space into the shapes and colors – not recognizable forms (trees, streets, houses etc…) and think about those shapes as you paint today. Look at the images on the website as examples. You will have examples to take with you out with you to reference. Make sure you are working with the techniques that the first part of the class gave you – image above and videos we have just watched.
