Exploring Design will be the focus of this class. Design tools such as 2/3,1/3, "little bit" will be cited as well as formal design concepts of "S-curve", "steelyard", "pattern" and "circular". Although these formulas are very effective, these aren’t necessarily the only route to success. Design can be boiled down to unequal shapes, unequal angles, and asymmetry. These are discussed with many samples cited. Ray demonstrates the "grisaille" painting approach. It's effective to see your design in black and white and paint over it in color.
