Making waves: lesson of the week
Materials: watercolor and pencil on paper. The intro to the assignment involved history of op art and masters Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. I tried to emphasize how variation of line thickness can give the illusion of depth within the picture plane. The rules were simple: to fill the page, isolate warm and cool colors, use diagonals and repetition to move the eye. The results were completely unique. Forty two wonderful works.
