Color, Shape & Composition©

I am teaching art at the Academy for Lifelong Learning (University of Delaware) in Wilmington, DE.
This semester our focus will be exploring new materials (mixed media) in an abstract form.

COLOR, SHAPE AND COMPOSITION will be the first subject I will cover in a 13 week structured lesson plan.
Every other week we will cover a new subject.

I painted this just to show my students what colors, shapes and lines will do in/with a painting.
Left side for instance, I purposely did not use a black contour to emphasize the shapes in the red circle and in the grey triangle.

I like it quite a bit! It definitely is a happy painting! ______________________________ Abstract oil

Dimensions: 18"x24" (46X61 cm) on a Studio stretched canvas.
Painted staple free sides.
Painting doesn't need a frame. ______________________________

very nice spacing of shapes in this piece along with effective shadowing creating a good sense of depth
