artsy green things ....

i'm still milking my week away at art camp .... i've been blogging it for far longer than i was actually there .... allison and i had signed up for independent study .... but were in the same studio ... so we rename our space to co-dependent study .....
here is another painting project i did there .... greens and brown pieces ... please see the last post and you'll know that i was using raw umber (and only raw umber ... no burnt sienna)
i did six backgrounds .... greens on papers ... then painted loads of other papers brown ... and laid them all out ....
i sorted out where i wanted all the bits and glued them down ... and snapped pics .... but i think they aren't done ... there are issues with lights and darks and focal points and such .... so maybe a pop of another color ... and some words .... i'm not working on them at the moment ... but will ... to get them finished ...

below are the six of them on a bench outside the percival studio ... you can see two of the other huts in the grove ... (have any of you read the percy jackson and the olympian series? the huts in the round make me think of the huts at the hero camp ... except theirs would be way fancier ... having been created by greek gods and all) ... but i digress ... green paintings on a bench ...

once i figure out how to finish them, i'll snap more pics and show you ...

i did, in fact, go into my studio last friday with the intention of finishing these .... or finishing a giant blue canvas i started at kanuga ... but instead? i glued all my grody paintbrushes to a canvas .... maybe i'll show you that tomorrow .... we'll see ... you'll have to come back and check now that you know i'm in the blog every day habit, huh?

It will be interesting to see what happens with these. I like seeing the process you go through.
