It doesn't seem to matter that we work from the same instructions when we follow a tutorial - we always end up with very different paintings.
|My Painting - The Old Red Barn|
Here is a synopsis of the vignette guidelines:
-Between 30 and 40 % of the paper should be untouched
-The painted area should touch the edge in 3 or 4 places but not in a sustained way.
-The untouched areas should have and interesting, interlocking shape - not proportional or equal
-Hard edges should dominate ( I think Linda was more successful with this aspect than I)
We had just started thinking about doing a second painting when I realized that I needed to start dinner so Linda went ahead and painted a second piece.

It doesn't matter how short or how long the time is, painting with a friend is great and well worthwhile.
