Color Class and Life Drawing II Come to an End – Freshman Year at RMCAD

By | Animals, art school, RMCAD, watercolor | No Comments

It’s been a busy quarter with two studio classes. In color, we started out with assignments to paint in different color harmonies – which forced us to experiment with non-usual colors. We ended the class this week with the topic of synesthesia – where senses are mixed in a physical experience, and then we were asked to create a work that was inspired by a response to music.

I had fun with this – and created this work with the woodpecker in a waterfall cascade of sound. It’s painting in gouache with a watercolor pencil for detail.

The color class was definitely the most challenging and new for me.

If you’re interested in the song the inspired the painting, I embedded it below from Soundcloud.

The Life Drawing class was pretty straightforward, but I found by just having to do so much drawing, it became easier to get a physical sense for what I was seeing, and then to appreciate the changes that take place with movement.

In one week’s exercise, we had to draw 24 hand positions.
