Visual Obsession, Pivotal Moments and the Passage of Time, Workshop, Day 3
Andrea began with a demonstration about making choices using different compositional formatting devices. Some of the ones discussed were; organize on the grid, create a window, icon, radiating, random, narrative, or cruciform. We were also asked to include our memory, icon or visual obsession.
Some of the artists we looked at to see these different kinds of formats were; Robert Motherwell, Michael Cutlip, Holly Roberts, Ivey Storer, & Hanna Hoch.

remove the paper backing by soaking in water and gently rubbing the paper away
Image transfer was an interesting way to work. I was not sure if it would have been just as easy to cut out the image and glue it onto the page?
End of Day 3
I finished 2 small paintings that day and felt really satisfied that the pieces were coming together.
