My week in Washington was amazing, as always. I always love be in that gorgeous place and gather new insights from Richard. The pinnacle was learning a new method for creating notans and discovering its use to strengthen my work. As soon as I can, I will post step by step instructions.
This painting was one I did one very early Tuesday morning- I was alone at my new favorite site in Mt Vernon. The chattering birds were the only sounds. There was a silvery glow to the sky and water. I used the notan method to make my design and below is the notan that guided me. I must say that since I was trained as a painter, not a graphic designer- my design was never my strongest aspect. Now, with the new Richard method I think I can change and develop a stronger design.
