I took a really great painting and collage workshop this past weekend at PAFA with Ken Kewley and Stuart Shils - the focus on seeing - we did collage work in Ken's class focusing on planes of color. It was great being a student again. I soaked it up.

I did these when I got home - it is a great exercise in seeing and not thinking - and of course it is always fun to play with colors.

We worked from the figure, building these 3d figures all in square planes of painted cardboard. Later on we painted from the live model and our cardboard models. The end results were exciting. It was great working from a live model which I haven't done in a really long time. And wonderful to use a process I wouldn't ordinarily use.
