He spoke about how your process was just as important as the finished piece (some of what he said can be found in Process to the People: Part 1 and Process to the People: Part 2 from the Muddy Colors Blog) He also briefly went over Color Theory with us. Great information- and the links I have go over much of what he said; but honestly- you cannot beat being there in the same room and having the ability to ask questions!!
For the workshop part- we answered a series of questions about our monsters- helping us get to know them- so that when we started sculpting we had a better idea of what we were creating. Then we photographed them and are supposed to paint portraits from our photo reference at home. Howard said he would be doing a muddy colors post on the workshop and would include the finished paintings from any student who emailed him a copy.
All in all it was an awesome experience. If you were there and took pictures or want to share your monster- please leave a comment in reply to this post (be patient; we have to moderate all comments so it may take a day to show up)
Here are the photos from the workshop:
|Alisha and Rachel were really patient with me- I don't know|
how many pictures I took of them- thanks guys for being great sports!
|I don't remember who had the idea- but someone decided that a |
hair dryer would be faster for warming up the clay then kneading it :D
And now- the Monsters: (if I missed any- let me know and either send me a pic or add one to this post in the comments!)
And Finally- Painting!
It was a FANTASTIC day- THANK YOU Howard for coming out and hanging out with us!!
See you all at the next one!
