ART CLASS: HARD EDGE ABSTRACTS Part 1.


ABSTRACT CLASS 07ABSTRACT CLASS 08

Friday’s art class were given the task of producing one ‘serious’ hard edge abstract painting after completing an introductory exercise.

I prefer to teach abstraction using ‘real’ examples. In this case I brought along a broad range of patterned rocks, some of which can be seen in today’s photos. The patterns on these rocks are a wonderful resource for artists wishing to pursue non-representational art.

Class members were asked to use clean, flat colours with clear, well-defined edges with no outlines.

The introductory exercise involved painting a pattern from one of the rocks on at least one 15 x 15cm piece of primed craftwood. I have included some of the early stages of this exercise.

More tomorrow!
