Next we have Beth's finished work. Beth wanted to use Kathie George's design but wanted the layout configured differently. Part of the class was creating art to fit specific predetermined design parameters. This is only a really fancy way of saying we were using an existing frame size and wanted the art work to fit the available frame. Kathie's original design was resized, flipped & partially redrawn to fit into the design space.
The second photo shows Beth working with Prismacolor pencils during the embellishment phase. Here is Beth's completed framed piece - the mood of this painting is so different from Kathie's original.
How do you determine the size of your work of art? Do you create art to fit the size of a finishing technique or vice versa?
