Yes, there are benefits to organizing. I am finding things I completely forgot about. I now have more art to share! In the past, usually out of frustration for not knowing something, I’ve jumped into “a painting a day mode” to learn, i.e. color, or shapes, or playfulness. The paintings I will share over the next month or so are studies. I often found inspiration in other painters’ work. Great exercises, copying master works help with problem solving: identifying color, developing composition, laying in of lights and darks, building up texture, etc. Here’s two works: LR Study of Picasso’s Boy With A Dove and LR Study of Picasso’s Rooster. I used acrylic paint for both. Anyone who’s worked with acrylics knows that they dry fast and that means I had to work fast. No time to stress or ruminate! There are newspaper collage pieces on the rooster study. Enjoy!
