Your course is everything I wanted to get out of a college class but without the pressure of being graded and way more fun! LOVE LOVE LOVE this.
So many take always! Layering, mark making, neutralizing, varying shapes, hard lines! A lot to keep in mind as one paints but as you said it’s a process and a gradual build up. Will watch this one many times and evaluate my paintings in light of all of your tips. Painting abstracts is new to me and has allowed me to explore colours, line, texture and shape! A whole new world! Thanks Kato!!
Wow, Kato! You have put together such a comprehensive collage of information on painting techniques, creative knowledge, examples loop and inspiration. I will never look at lines quite the same way. I am happy and grateful to reconnect with my playful spirit and joyfully remove my overthinking cap! It has been about 20 years since I took the colour theory course and it is so great to see it again presented so clearly. I will watch this many times as you have shared so many golden nuggets of information. Thanks for the valuable colour mixing demonstrations!
I like how it inspires creativity and reminds me that there are no barriers. It doesn’t have to be difficult. Encourages me to get started and try out different things!
You have done an amazing job putting all this material together, and the video demonstrations are so good. I’m inspired to go further and try different techniques. Thanks very much for all your thoughtful work!
I’m taking away a lot of inspiration! Going to explore with underpainting and different brush work. Excited to start the process!
I love doing the shape exercises. The paintings are dynamic, the mood is lighter. I am getting a better appreciation of Modern Art; the freedom it permits and the playfulness.
I’m loving this segment. I particularly love the idea of breaking down the landscape into blocks/shapes and simplifying the basic composition. This is really helping me when I am struggling with whether or not I have a good composition.
I really like the idea of creating a painting as a process of problem-solving. Watching you go through the process from beginning to end and explaining each step (i.e. identifying the problem and then implementing the solution) was extremely interesting and useful. I could watch this for hours!!
