One day workshop at the MFA, Boston with Julie Miller, Drawing from observation to abstraction. Workshop consisted of two sessions beginning with looking at some of American early works of modernism for inspiration. We then went to American folk art wing of the gallery and began making marks across two pages, knowing that after lunch we were filling in the spaces from gallery holding art from Americans with traditional cultural backgrounds.
Some of the inspiration from the third floor.
I worked from these animals initially thought to be made by Italian born Salvatore Cernigliaro about 1880 for the Gustav A. Dentzel Carousel Company of Philadelphia.
My work, graphite and coloured pencil on pastel paper.
