Playing with Photo and Painting Combos

 

Once again I am playing with combining photos I’ve taken recently with some of the painting and sketchbook drawings I’ve done. I don’t know whether or how I will use them, but they are fun to experiment with. There are of course lots of combinations with blending modes and different repetitions of layers.  For these I am letting the colors of the painting determine the final colors, for the most part.

Painting classes with Jane Davies

I have recently finished a 10 week online course with Jane Davies called 100 Drawings on Cheap Drawing Paper.  I have learned so much and painted soooo much.  Some of these lessons or actual paintings will probably eventually make its way into my art quilt work.  There are so many possibilities, from painting on cloth or over photo or digital images to scanning and printing my paper paintings onto cloth.  In the meantime here are some examples from the class.

Original Painting Design on Paper
