INTRODUCTION

My 14th class in ‘Produce Paintings’ and ‘Produce Drawings’ (these being subjects that are part of ‘Certificate III in Visual Arts’) proved to be a productive session.  Our teachers once more emphasised our need to put together our portfolios and bring in next week, so that we could go through them and select artworks for assessment the following week.

‘PRODUCE PAINTINGS’ CLASS

Our ‘Produce Paintings’ class commenced with our teacher, Toby Dutton, checking in with each of the students individually.  We generally talked about the preparation of our art portfolio for assessment and said requirements to be met.

 

 

MY ‘PRODUCE PAINTINGS’ CLASS PROJECT No. 1

  • My Painting Palette:  My colour palette was based on trying to achieve a colour story that would compliment each other, but also have some colours that would be in contrast to one another.

  • A3 Canvas Paper:  I used a canvas that I had prepared within my last ‘Produce Paintings’ session as a source of inspiration for this week’s first painting.

  • My Completed Abstract Painting No. 1:  I enjoyed producing this painting and it helped that I had prepared its start at the previous ‘Produce Paintings’ class session.  Very therapeutic – art for therapy!

MY ‘PRODUCE PAINTINGS’ CLASS PROJECT No. 2

 

  • During this session I managed to complete an additional painting: I used the left over oil paint from my first painting.  It gave me an opportunity to let go and just paint freely, experiencing the feel of the brush strokes and the flow of the oil paint on the canvas paper.  A great way to just experiment!

‘PRODUCE DRAWINGS’ CLASS

Our ‘Produce Drawings’ class commenced after our lunch break.  This gave me a chance to recharge after the ‘Produce Paintings’ class.  The teacher, TIM JONES had each of us set up our work area in readiness to undertake another session of ‘Life Drawing’.  Once again we were made aware of the processes we needed to undertake, which had been explained to us during a previous ‘Produce Drawings’ class session with Toby Dutton.

 

MY ‘PRODUCE DRAWING’ CLASS PROJECT

  • Here below is my easel set-up during the ‘life drawing’ class.  Under instruction from our teacher, we completed a set of ‘life drawings’ done in quick succession; some being drawn within minutes and others being given up to 20 minutes to complete.

VISUAL DIARY DRAWINGS

In between classes I managed to do only the one pencil drawing in my visual diary. Time-poor this week and this was all I could sadly manage!

MOBILE PHONE PHOTOGRAPHY

Each week before and between these classes I often take photographs, and just on my mobile phone.  I have always been a keen ‘photo-taker’ and do enjoy trying to capture small moments of daily life around me.  While these photos have been taken on my Samsung 6 mobile phone, I feel it is better than not taking them at all – as using my SLR camera would not be practical on these days.  It has inspired me to think about doing more photography in the new year and blogging about it more fully – time will tell!

CAE is located in one of Melbourne's iconic cafe/outdoor dining 
locations - DEGRAVES STREET as photographed above.   Degraves 
Street's bluestone-cobbled lane way, its postcard Parisian 
atmosphere of outdoor dining under umbrellas, and its quaint 
retail shops, certainly makes attending CAE's art course each 
week just that much more of an enjoyable experience!

CONCLUSION

Am always feeling very fortunate in being able to participate in these painting and drawing classes.  My early morning train journey into the heart of the city of Melbourne via Flinders Street Station; and being able to soak up the ambiance of Degraves Street itself during my class break – very much adds to the overall pleasure of the day’s creative outcomes.  Art for therapy at its best for sure….
