No apologizes ... I'm still learning. *grin
I had an orange wedge as well as a whole orange that I set up on some white card stock and had a light shinning on the two. I drew the two (I use the term 'drew' lightly) on my support which happened to be another piece of card stock taped to some plexiglas and sitting on my french easel .... whew, so far so good. Now comes the hard part. I thought I'd mix my colors first so all I'd have to do is put the color down where needed. Well, that didn't work out too well as I kept having to mix more colors to match what I was seeing. I found I was thinning my paint too much at times and not at all other times.
Having said all that I realize I'm still learning and I'm pretty happy with the results. I've made notes to myself as to what I want to focus on with my next attempt.
- don't thin the paint so much ... so frequently
- look more closely at shapes
- for now less blending
- keep having fun!
Any suggestions you can offer are appreciated.
