Week 8

This week involved creating a layered back ground and then seeing what emerged to be the focal point, a technique that Mystele, the teacher called pulling. With this technique, anything goes, so faces can be distorted. Also seems like a technique that Jung would have thought open to interpretation as it displays the inner psyche

 

So here is mine

Tried this technique with a different pice of work, which I may post a piccie of next week.

Week 6

Week 6 was a lesson from Tam that involved painting over a collage.

Here it is in progress

 

 

Found painting over the face a little difficult because it was so small. Also lost a little of the detail which I didn’t want to lose, but I know it is there.

Life Book week 5

Week 5 involved a transfer of a photo of myself using gesse, then painting over it.
