Some Dutch Teachers in class

19 04 2013

Yesterday we had four visitors in Art class who were with us, drawing and sharing our time. They came from Holland to visit us.

Some teachers of IES Llanera and the duch teachers are preparing an interesting experience about teaching throuth a WebCam.

In a few weeks we we’ll have a lesson with the duch students. I’m exciting about it, and you?

Here you have some Photos of our visitors



Drawing the negative spaces

18 04 2013

Negative space is the space between objects or parts of an object, or around it. Studying this can have a surprisingly positive effect on a painting.

In her book Drawing on the Right Hand Side of the Brain Betty Edwards uses a great Bugs Bunny analogy to explain the concept. Imagine Bugs Bunny speeding along and running through a door. What you’ll see in the cartoon is a door with a bunny-shaped hole in it. What’s left of the door is the negative space, that is the space around the object, in this case Bugs Bunny.

Let’s see the results…

WHAT IS NEGATIVE SPACE?

16 04 2013

Negative space isn’t the place your mind retreats to when a painting isn’t going well. Negative space is the space between objects or parts of an object, or around it. Studying this can have a surprisingly positive effect on a painting.
