February already, class with Pamela Allan

I don't know where Jan went, I do know that winter is still here.
At present I am taking an online class with Pamela Allan, very intense and she is such a great teacher.  We were to choose one of our favorite artists pieces and duplicate the colors. Only cutting with scissors...your scissors are your pencil in Pamela's class.
Macke is one of my favorites, I chose his 'Three People Walking' a rather serene lovely piece.
Here is my take on it.
No stitching it is just pinned and glued in place. No pre-drawing or drawing, just shapes cut out with scissors.
Next we were to use the same colors for our own composition. I chose to create a scene that is less serene, mine is called "Three People watching the storm"

I will do some handstitching on it and hopefully it will come to life.
I don't know  what is in store for us next week, but this weeks work on color was an eye opener for me.
I also love seeing all the other artists work that other studens have chosen.

These are wonderful It's hard to believe that you just cut them out with no drawing. Great job!!
