Apples Painted on Nideggen Paper in my SketchbookThis has absolutely nothing to do with anything I am doing this week. Whatever happened to my cloud project? I haven't given up on it - just takin' a break.
These little apples have been hanging around my studio, begging to be painted.
There must be something about this time of year - most of my students tend to get picky and detailed, even though they say that's not what they want. Maybe because the season has changed, and we have come into a controlled environment, they are trying to be more controlling too - as if they should be doing a "better" job because there is no excuse of the distractions that we have painting outside. Whatever. I am trying to get everyone (myself included) to swoop through with a loaded brush and get those colors and shapes in with just a few swoops. Then go back and shape things up with shadows and MAYBE some detail.
Rainy and dark here today! A nice cozy day to paint with students/friends. We are painting white objects today.
