In my last post I showed you some initial efforts for the class. Thankfully, I'm improving. Or, at least my efforts aren't too embarrassing for public viewing.
Having never done a still life before I decided to record my progress as a reminder that what comes before doesn't have to remain after. I'm frequently afraid, in a good share of all of my finishing work, that I'll mess up something that is already somewhat successful. One of the biggest lessons coming from this class is that you can just paint over it. Of course, I know that in my brain. But, when you actually do it over and over, it becomes rather freeing in the heart.
|I'm liking the ripped up wall paperish background. Check out the shadow being cast from the little white house onto the red one. I'm getting it, I'm getting it!|
I have been trying to post this for days. Blogger is just not cooperating with the downloads. So, you'll have to wait til the next post to see the finished piece...
