Making Compositions is becoming a serious addiction LOL. Here are my latest ones:
With the blue one I am not happy. This one was supposed to focus on texture as well. I zapped a piece of blue lutrador, cut out the shapes and quilted this onto the light blue background. Because of the zapping the shapes of the circles and lines is not well defined so I added stitchlines to put more emphasis on the shapes. Still not looking good. The zapped effect gives a bit of a textured effect, but the quilt is as flat as a pancake. But I have an idea which can change it. Stay tuned for the next blog post. Hopefully I can create the textured effect I am thinking of :-)/

And here is the finished result of Cubism. I called it Cubism Wine. As you can see because of the squaring up, I lost part of the wine glass stems at the top and the left of the quilt. That is a point of attention I have to keep in mind for whenever in the future I use narrow objects close to the edges.http://www.ehow.com/video_8040264_draw-cubism-art.html

Cubism was the subject of the latest lesson of Pamela Allen's class. And although the Cubism paintings look so simple, making a Cubism composition is very hard to do. At least it is for me :-).

Working in series can get very addictive :-). Not only did I start a series with trees, but as you can see from the pictures here, also one on abstracts:
Galleriba, they are for sale. Maybe an - early - idea for the coming December month?
