I was recently introduced to these fabulous semi abstract figures by my talented art teacher, Diane Segal. I just happened to meet Diane in a local art store and knew right away that I wanted to sign up for her workshops. (See below for information on Diane’s upcoming art show in Troy, NY)
I love the potential of these simple figures. After finding magazine and catalog pictures, I traced around them with a thick marker, extending their length in order to lengthen them a bit. From there, I cut them out (just like making paper dolls) and gave them a coat of gesso. They’ll be given their forever colors after I decide how I want to integrate them into various mixed media pieces. I’ll keep you posted on the outcome.
