Today we focused on painting glass.
Yes, there is a lot of fruit in this one but I made it easier with no folds in the fabric this time.
We started by blocking in where you want the top of the fruit to come on your painting then the bottom of the platter where the fruit sit, then where the bottom of the stem of the platter sits and so on. Don't paint in the glass platter yet. you want to place the fruit where you want it. Some of you may have more or less fruit in your painting than what was actually in the still life. That's OK. It all depends on the positioning and the size you sketched out your fruit to be. So, just use these pictures as a guide for how the fruit surfaces look in color and texture not necessarily to copy the picture exactly.
I took a picture of the beads up close however, it didn't have a dark background behind them and that will cause them to look different. I will take another picture of them with dark behind them and post them separately.
Be working on this during the week and bring it into class next Wednesday. We will be doing more work on it to perfect our master pieces.
I will be posting the progress on mine as well.
Till next time.
