Benjamin Baccarani is doing a 4-day workshop at the Hangar. 17th November was the second day.
Benjamin started with a demo of how to do a quick background using few colours. He emphasized the importance of working omn more than piece at a time.
After finishing the background he asked us to look carefully to see what we could distinguish. Could we see shapes - or maybe figures ? As a demo he outlined what he saw in his background.
Below is a quick background - what do you see ? An animal ? People sitting around a table ?
After outlining we were encouraged to fill in the shapes - or paint around them. Below you see 3 very different ways of completing the exercise.
