Composition and Contrast in San Miguel de Allende

Last week I taught a workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and had a really awesome group of participants. Here are a few images of student work (consider it all in-process at various stages).

The first exercise was about using pairs of complementary colors.

One student's work....

Looks just like this view down an alley.

Another exercise was about using different scales of pattern, and different degrees of contrast.

Here are a few more pix of the venue and San Miguel:

Bougainvellea EVERYWHERE
OUTDOOR work space, shaded by tarps and umbrellas

Lots of vistas like this from my walks. I love the rooftop gardens.

We did not all keep our supplies organized.


  1. The colours are so beautiful. You certainly know how to get your students inspired!


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
