In the next term we will get some good observation exercises in
Foliage studies , flowers and a drapery day squeezed in somewhere by request!
We havent really ever studied foliage and thanks to our resident plant person Jo Turner who brought in a cornucopia of interesting plants we now are inspired.
With big vigorous ginger plants and palm leaves contrasted with some different flaxes and contrasting textures i think it will make some interesting paintings
Your job is to go to the garden centre and buy a couple of interesting plants , or bring in a palm leaf etc etc
And if foliage really doesn’t blow your hair back, you can always paint some flowers instead!
The drapery exercise we will squeeze in somewhere…always a good skill to learn as it challenges us to see what is really going on rather than what we think it there!
look forward to next term
