Tom Hoffmann workshop – final day – Abstract

twoabstracts
Our last lesson with Tom Hoffmann in Oaxaca started with him just painting colors. He talked about design, composition, and shapes. It seemed really intimidating, but once I started painting, it was fun. We were in a small forgotten corner of a huge Mercado. He explained that this was a perfect place for all kinds of abstractions due to the shapes and the colors of the tents and tarps surrounding us
As we sat in the shade and painted, we wondered how they actually sold anything here, almost no one stopped by. Most of the shoppers were in the huge crowded Mercado a block away.
