I’ve revived an old blog with some changes that make it look pretty much like the one you’ve been seeing and will play around with it a little more. I’m hoping this works better than the last one was so this’ll be test run. Please let me know how it looks to you.
I’m sharing with you all of the pieces I’ve done in a class with Fiber Artist, Pamela Allen. http://www.pamelart.com/ I’m working on a final piece now.
Lesson 1, using only black and white , create a composition, varying the tonal value so that a viewer is able to distinguish one element from another.
Lesson 1B , create a composition using a broad range of values within this narrow neutral palette
Lesson 2A. Create a collage that makes objects readable by adjusting the value in monochrome to create a contrast. We still have to contend with value, but we now have the added characteristics of saturation, pure hue and simultaneous contrasts that occur.
Lesson 2B, Create collage using same colors, muted. I would like you to pay particular attention to how one color can appear to change depending on the color that is beside it.
Lesson 2C. Choose a two color palette with as many permutations of the two colors as you can find .Now create a composition while experimenting with layering these colors upon each other to see what kind of contrasts you get.
Lesson 3 D, Create composition, using only 2 colors, play with contrasts that are possible by altering the size and placement of objects in a composition.
