#330 Colour Blocks

I have spent today preparing the first year studio for their next project, they will arrive tomorrow morning to a selection of colourful set ups of these painted blocks of varying sizes. In a nutshell, their task is to make four or five paintings of these blocks, first using just black and white paint then using a limited pallette of raw sienna and light red, then a full palette, then an extended palette. I think this is the single most useful exercise I did at art college (I currently work where I studied, the University of Gloucestershire) and has certainly helped me over the last 330 days with these paintings who knows I may have even had these two in my original set up all those years ago.....Oil on gesso 16cm x 12cm.
