Pattern Painting Exercise - revisited

I rarely introduce the Pattern Painting exercise
because it's the complete opposite of
the One Hour Approach
and can get confusing.  
However, after seeing the Upside Down Paintings 
the class did last week,
I knew they were more than ready for it.
I was not disappointed! 

Such strong design 

So simple yet so expressive. 
It tells a story.

This just works on so many levels. 
Shapes, color, design.

Lousy image, sorry! 
Very strong painting, "exaggerating the values"

Marsha's first version

then she did this in the last ten minutes of class.
From an Instagram out of a book. 

Just another hard day at the office! 
Are you kidding?
