Practicing Skills Learned in Wanda's Intuitive Color Class
Before I left Wanda's class Monday, I bought a baggie containing a starter set of 100 lovely batik squares. When I got home I arranged the new squares in the color order of the color wheel as I did with the practice squares in class. The new batik squares are shown in the first picture. Then I created a second colorwash shown in the second picture.
During the last three days I arranged and rearranged the squares in the colorwash using the classroom squares and the colorwash using the purchased batik squares. When I happened to walk by them, I would move squares around if I though I saw a better arrangement.
Today I practiced sewing the classroom set of squares together and that practice colorwash is shown in the third picture.
Wanda encouraged us to feel free to substitute some of the classroom squares with some squares from our own stash as the classroom set of squares were chosen to challenge us as we learned about the color wheel, textures, contrasts and color values. I decided to sew my classroom squares together without squares from my stash to keep as a memento of the class. I plan to use the purchased starter set of batik squares as just that, the first in my collection of batik squares.
