Week two we learned about Joan Miro from Jenny Doh.
Joan Miro is a Spanish artist known for creating a style of drawing called automatic drawing. Automatic drawing is a style that instead of using rules and methods taught conventionally you drew lines intuitively.
- developed automatic drawing
- believed in drawing intuitively.
What I learned
- just like with Horace Pippin simple doesn't equal easy. Not having an idea of what I am making and allowing my hand to go wherever it wants, and then accept it, is a great challenge in letting go.
- It can be fun to draw intuitively, see what's there, and then brainstorm what can be made out of
I don't really get Joan Miro or his art but it's interesting to try something new and examine why he was interested in it. I haven't been sure how to describe my inspired by Miro, I guess , it was intuitive and what came out of my brushes is what came out.
