I thought that we made an excellent start to Painting Challenge 3 yesterday.
The objects were chosen mindful of both the challenge and our commercial Christmas enterprise! Our Christmas Exhibition opens on Friday 8th December 6 - 8 pm - I will provide further details soon.
Again yesterday, we placed our thinking around the work of Velazquez and we chatted about artists from the Red Rag Gallery which is well worth a look http://www.redraggallery.co.uk/artists.asp
We also discussed what artists mean by ‘form’ and how pictures can have a variety of readings based on the intention of the artist. I have attached a link that might assist our dialogue https://www.thoughtco.com/definition-of-form-in-art-182437 - additionally how would we describe ‘form’ in the colour field work of Mark Rothko?
