The first week of my art class with Peter Bonner at the Art Student League of New York. The class is on-line with student concentrated in the New York area but scattered everywhere. Peter spends the first hour of class discussing paintings — the majority abstract, but some from earlier times. He talks about what makes a painting work — value, rhythm, etc. Very valuable, both for looking at paintings and making one’s own. When paining, I spend a lot of time looking at what I’ve done so far, trying to figure out what is missing, what makes me uncomfortable, etc. Peter’s comments really help with that. He is both analytical and kind. A big range of ages, tending towards senior, with more women than men. Some really great work.
