Two paintings from still life painting session/workshop (Tuesday)



In today's workshop I started to GET a couple things that weren't as clear yesterday. I was able to really see subtle colors that had previously eluded me...and I felt I was better at seeing reflected light too. I worked on those grayed panels that I made last night and that helped me define color and values.
Elio also worked with me specifically on how edges meet...another great workshop day!

Ooh! Subtle reflections and gorgeous shapes! I like! I like! [I'm just glad that this is a five day workshop so that there are three days of new stuff to see!]

Hi Celeste, Such great reflections especially in the bottom photo (the jug). I'm taking a class too. Always learning!
