I love these little coffee creamers. I love anything coffee related. I was given the clear bottle. I am not sure where it comes from, but it makes a nice still life item.
My ellipses are off just a little. I ran out of time to put in the holes in the doily, so its just a white table, but I am fairly pleased with the overall painting experience. I surprised myself a few different times today.
This is my first time getting off the Goya palette. I was surprised at how well I did finding the gray I was looking for using just Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson and French Ultramarine (Plus white of course). It is still a limited palette, but I wanted to challenge myself to get off the earth colors. I love earth colors, but it is time to start seeing what these other paints are for.
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
