A Quick Little Demo for ClassI painted the leaves as one shape (not each leaf) and then went back in, when it was dry, and added some darks and detail. I kept the detail simple - just enough to show that there is some pattern on the leaves.
Snowy, cold, windy here. No, I won't say that every day all winter - just until I get used to it. Actually, I never get used to it. I need to embrace it! Get some snow shoes. Drink more hot chocolate. Buy some more candles. Make more stew. Bake more bread. Do you notice how everything after the snow shoes is an indoor activity? I don't think that's embracing winter - I think it's hiding out. Hibernating.
I have decided for the month of December I will sketch/paint dinner ingredients, bottles, jars, and labels. Stay tuned.
