We did white on white again this week- I learned a lot from last weeks approach and feel like there was some improvement!

This week's painting session: white objects.

The egg painting was this week's painting session. It's small, probably 4"x4", due to I could only paint for a little bit today. So I decided to paint the entire painting in a tiny space with a big brush- I didn't really think that one through. I painted the other two after work with stuff I found in the art studio and the kitchen.

Just did a quick painting of three pairs. I take pictures of these paintings with my phone and sometimes the colors, contrast, and quality are pretty inaccurate. Anyway, this one took about 30-40 minutes. I was trying to move away from my habit of noodling things too much.

Another egg painting for fun. This one was way more of a struggle- I don't think I approached it well. I wish I could just use simple strokes, but I messed up the painting early and continued polishing a turd until I kinda realized what I had done.

This week's painting. This was a super fun/challenging subject- we will do another egg next week!

I went to do a landscape sketch this morning- it was hard. I learned how much I struggle with simplifying shapes and colors- it was a good excerise.

Here's a quick still life I did at home- just for kicks.
This weeks painting- we used natural window light. We painted for 1.5 hrs like all the other paintings. The subject is a giant bulb, two plums, a lemon, a cup and a kettle. The lighting was difficult on this one, but a lot of fun.
