I followed John's rule of 1/4s today... I think. Composition confuses me. I know when I see something I like, but I don't always know why I like it or what it is that works about that composition. Color is so much more clear to me and easy to translate and understand. Many more days to work on figuring this out.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
