Georgia O’Keefe
Susannah Pal

We will look at her flower paintings today- we only have an hour!
Susannah Pal
35:39
O’Keefe often gets dismissed because often used in schools (GCSE and A’Level’) dismissed as a ‘feminine’ artist and a bit kitch perhaps.
Susannah Pal
36:00
But her work is beautiful in the flesh!

Looking through images: Where do you enter through the image? What do you touch first? Think about the planes of the image- what is nearest and far away? Some of them look ethereal- but what makes them this way?

Four rectangles to play with compositions
Susannah Pal
50:31
Use your fingers to make a rectangle and hold up against flowers if it helps you.
Susannah Pal
50:49
Think about the broad shapes your see and how they fit into the rectangle
Susannah Pal
50:57
Think of it like a jigsaw.
Susannah Pal
52:01
Where are the darkest shapes
Susannah Pal
52:10
Block them in.
Susannah Pal
52:34
Blocking into tones will helps you get an idea of how you enter the picture visually
