4 1/2 Days Left – Ok – Let’s Make #ART

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Tuesday and the Color of Art is moving us Forward!

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal. – Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

A New Look to a Old Tool (and New Artwork from Old Materials)

Well oh well… the risk was taken and the edits have been made. Switching the look of something that I have been working on for 3 years was a difficult thing to do, but I felt it needed some updates.

Please let me know your thoughts about the new look of the page. I have cleaned up the PAGES portion (now at the top of the window) and grouped a few together. I am still thinking about more changes to the sidebar… remove my beautiful face, switch places with this badge and that image among other things.

Always looking for FEEDBACK – it is the hinge that holds all learning and change together (thanks Janie – stole that one).

For your viewing pleasure – a new artwork… it is “Untitled” as of yet and is also not quite finished… Enjoy!
