Exercise 1 Extension

This is what I've been working on all day - am not completely happy with it, but I had to call it quits after 8 hours of leaning over acrylics. This is homework from the first week's drawing exercise as explained at the bottom of this entry. Its actually 6 separate pieces (each A5 in size) that make up a full image, but each piece is also supposed to be standalone. It (pieces that are part of a whole) wasn't a requirement of the brief, but I quite liked the idea of a puzzle like painting so I went with that. I also spent a lot of time sketching out possible combinations of elements. Here's a couple of pages out of my sketchbook with my 'thoughts'.

So nice to see your class extension. And to think that this started with a pen and a chili pepper! Most interesting process, I will eventually try it.

Mithi, I'm really enjoying following your journey assignment by assignment. The process is fascinating. Keep up the great work!

This is so much fun seeing all of your projects. I can see how all of the things you are studying would make one a better artist. All of these elements are so important.
