Abstract Still Life

April the 16. We held a very successful workshop on abstract still life with Elmarie Kirsche. Elmarie is an art teacher and is a member of the watercolour society. She obtained her degree in Art from the University of Pretoria.. Art is her passion and she certainly got us all involved in doing abstract.
    We had to trace off a picture of a still life in  a black permanent marker Then we had to cut it up and make a picture. We could cut up into squares or diagonally. We then used the impression of what appeared to make into a picture we could
 paint or work with pastels, crayons or our choice of medium. It was great fun and we all learnt something from this more structured way of making an abstract.
   We had a good turnout and everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
