This Monday ( 26/11) there was a small afternoon class - so that meant a lot of personal attention and guidance from Pim. Odile started her painting last time Pim hosted a class. (unfortnately no photo of the halfway work). At home she made two different versions of where she wanted to go. These you see as the small pictures on the right. They were done in A5 format. It was difficult to decided how to continue so she used some elements from both. The result you see on the left (which is a BIG canvas) It might not be 100% finished - but that is something she will decide on in the next days.
Celina started her painting at Marina's session a week ago - you see the cool Nordic colours. But where to go from here ?
Carina Linne who was an active painter when she lived on the Côte d'Azur once recommended using the ugliest colour possible to make the painting stand out. Not sure if the pink is the ugliest colour - but yes, the painting definately stands out.
Now the challenge is - what is up and what is down. After turning the painting round and round - the decision has been made. Then - how to frame it ? With a gold frame to bring in some warmth - or keep it cool with a silver frame. Here you see the result:
When paintings are finished it is always a challenge to start out on a new white background. Here is the start of a new painting. What will it become ? That we will see in the weeks to come.
