Petra very kindly allowed us to use her fabulous garden as a base for our workshop today.
Members and friends had the opportunity to discover and explore many different compositional rules that can turn the ordinary into the unusual, the everyday into something much more visually grabbing.
Here is Petra finding out more about about each of the rules outlined in Ona's introductory class.
The class were then given time to try out each of the compositional ideas for themselves through sketching...
to get fun, visually grabbing references
There was plenty of fun and laughter too :)
Lastly we came together to look at each others work and Ona helped us to see how the references or sketches could be modified and then used for possible paintings.
If you missed this event. Please keep watching this blog for news about our next summer fun day which will happen during July.
