Well after scraping off several attempts at painting pears with fewer and more deliberate brush strokes, I think I finally had some progress and success. In this group I decided to begin with a black and white to help me determine the values that I was struggling with. This seemed to help out quite a bit in the long run. The first 4 of these only took me about 10-15 minutes each. That is my goal with these quick studies. The last one I played with a bit longer. I want to do this same sort of study with another subject. It has been very helpful.
Just pretend it is a boat, they look great!
Thank you, Sandy! I think it’s easier to make things look exactly as you see them in a photo than how you want to portray them to others. But I’m really enjoying the time to spend on the process!
I hope you are getting to enjoy your pottery too. It’s beautiful and therapeutic like art is. I’d like to get to come see it and your setup sometime 🙂 have a great day!
