TEAPOT AND ORB - 6



Now it’s on to the roses and orb. This is slow going!
I worked on some of the roses and then the orb, which I think is finished – all of this minus shadows at this point.
However, I m afraid I’ve overdone the roses. Once again, all my tight, sharp lines – I’m going to try really, really hard to loosen up on the upper roses, if I can.
While wondering what color to use as the shadow, I accidentally got some violet into the pink – a tiny blob of cobalt blue violet was on the palette.
Serendipity! I had my shadow color!

Score: Painting 2, Deb 2

Deb, so wonderful!!! I'm learning that I just don't know if I have the patience for water media. I have a whole new respect for you guys that use it after my class using goauche this semester. Can't wait to see this continue on! You never dissapoint!

Deb, I think you should put as much detail into those roses as you did in the china items, which you did so well. So there!

Great work so far, I am sure this is going to be another winner!

Kimberly - gee, and it takes oil HOW LONG TO DRY!! (LOL) I've only used gouache once and really liked it - made my last year's Xmas card of ornaments on a silver tray out of gouache - maybe I should be thinking of this year's card now (maybe after ViewPoint!!!)
Oh Susan, did you say detail? Up close and personal and hours of work on them, maybe it doesn't show on the screen.
