Our home work for this week was to paint something that gave a sense of space. Well I thought and thought finally came up with this. Last year when I was at CIFI we went on to visit Pamela Armas's shop in the mountains of Albuquerque. I remember driving on this long endless so it seemed road, with vast spaces and with the mountians in distance in various shades of blue purple and green. The sky was intense blue in colour. The experience was awesome because we stopped on the side and I walked right in the middle of the road and took some pictures with not a vehicle in sight and no noise except for a distant call of a bird. Here one can't stop let alone walk on the highway. Even if you were mad enough to try, you would be flattened in a second lol! I have tried to capture the same sense of space and vasteness and the distance. Not sure if I have captured it here but hopefully it will be ok by my teacher. I will now go and paint something mundane as a window but I must say it is not easy to paint a window in water colours.
