I’ve Learnt a Lot about Color and Detail: Guest Blogger: Alana Koehler

September 12, 2017

Studies in Art and Design 301 Exhibition (Gladiolas) Blog #4 in a series.

Without much background in art before coming to study with Gail, I’ve learned a lot about color and detail.  I’ve started to notice shape, color, and design, from the plums I picked this morning to just being out in nature. I’ve broadened my use of color from my usual favorites to colors I hadn’t used much before.  I explored two main themes—a slice of Chalcedony agate that I saw at the DeYoung Museum, and a bunya bunya tree, and studied them in many different ways, especially the shapes and lines.  I’m looking forward to continuing to play with these themes and others.
