I promised to share my weekly paintings for my class whether they look good or not, and unfortunately this painting is a NOT! Last week I was reminded of why I often prefer working digitally rather than by hand. I need the undo button!
The assignment was to incorporate a few of the composition principles we learned into a painting, so I chose “keep an odd number of elements that vary in size” and “add rhythm.” I really preferred this painting before I added the brown (luckily I snapped a photo at that point), but I felt like it looked unfinished and needed more depth. Just for the record, smearing brown paint everywhere will not give you depth!
