PIECE BY PIECE
a game for facing your fears….
ONE PIECE AT A TIME.
This week’s lesson was taught by Kristin Dudish. I added a link to her facebook page because we’ve been having issues with the NING site and cannot download the class or any of the links.
But that’s all right because Tamara gave us another link to download the lessons and the PDFs.
I found this class very interesting and enjoyable. We had to take a picture and divide it in 2 inch squares. I loved doing this because when I was younger I loved to take puzzles like these and see if the final picture looked like the picture in the magazine.
I’m obsessed with Frida Kahlo and there are some great black and white pictures of her. I googled her and came up with this one.
I cut her up in 2×2 inch squares and using another paper with 2×2 blank squares I proceeded to draw and paint what I saw. Shapes – triangles, squares, circles, lines; no flowers, eyes, chins, etc. – just shapes. The media I used were, watercolor crayons, regular crayola crayons, prima coloring pencils, charcoal, plain pencil, pastels, oil pastels, water-color pastels, a regular ball point pen, watercolor pencils, black india ink, acrylic paints, and dots done with a pen.
This is a closeup. You can see some of the media was hard to match up to the different squares, but I thoroughly enjoyed playing this morning. I can see where I need to pay closer attention to the different shapes so they can match up better.
That’s it for this weeks lesson
I’ll be playing with this technique again, for sure!
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a note, either way, I love to read comments.
See ya’ next time.

You did a fantastic job with this lesson. I love it. Kahlo was a great choice. Your piece is really striking. I’ve divided paper into squares so far and that’s it.
Gracias, Laura! Go for it!! So much fun, I want to do more!
I just found you! So fun, interesting and inspiring!
