For the last lesson in Jane's online class, we worked on a modular piece. We had to use one of our piece from a previous lesson and explore it further. I decided to use my grid collage as a starting point and create a series. Each piece in a modular piece is supposed to stand on its own. So I worked on 9 paintings at the same time and just started rolling paint on all of them first.
Then I added some collage elements with transparent tissue and deli wrap and other kind of papers.
I could also use just these four pieces as a modular piece. I really liked working in a series because I wasn't getting too precious about them, I was just trying some stuff and using as much variety as I could using the same colors and design elements. I figured that if I ended up with 2 or 3 paintings that I liked, I would feel pretty good about it. Turns out I like all of them, even though some of them are not quite finished yet. That was a very fun class, I highly recommend it when she runs it again next year.
