Ray tried to get us to “loosen up” with gesture drawing exercises for various lengths of time. Many for which she modeled, and some were modeled by a couple members. 30 seconds, 60 seconds 5 minutes ! Stressing the need to focus on shapes.
Some of us got a bit detailed at first, but I think we loosened up over time. For the last exercise, Ray had each of us draw our non-dominant hand. Honestly, she was very pleased with those. An excellent teacher who always makes learning fun. Thanks, Ray!
A couple photos of Kimmer’s new “pelican” zentangle line of cards, and a pastel of boats which she did (much dreaded!) en plein air. I think we can agree, Kimmer has successfully ‘slain THAT dragon!”
See too, photo of a piece from newly returned member, Anne Latham. Ever the gentle touch watercolor, lovely. Welcome back, Anne! (Anne’s piece is the one on the right with blue painter’s tape)
