Class Demonstration

This was my demonstration last week in Lamesa…with a symmetrical format.  Symmetrical paintings are all about balance…formal or informal.  This is an informal motif because it is not a mirrors image.  Balance is the key in all paintings but it’s most important with a symmetrical format.  Asymmetrical is much easier for me because I like ‘stuff’ in my paintings.  Most of us recognize when our paintings list to the left or right like a boat about to capsize.  Adjusting shapes within the composition can be hazardous to your composition.  Balancing the painting as a whole is the goal.  Shapes are made larger, smaller, louder, quieter, softer disregarding the reference you are working from….hope you enjoy Paint Bucket Daises…
