Another term oil painting, but with a new professor. (It's really my second time through Oil Painting II.)
Last term, I did north of a dozen paintings. I've done four so far this year. I'm starting a new classroom painting today and a new homework this weekend, but the jury's still out if I'll really complete two more paintings over the next three class sessions.
Slowing down, though, has taught me that there are still miles to go once I've thought a painting is done. It takes time to just look at the object and see the final details, which, inevitably, results in little marks and highlights being added to the painting.
So, it's good not to be in a rush with a painting. It's good not to make any marks sometimes but just look. Understanding before action -- what a novel concept. At least for me!
Here's the production to date.
Classwork Still Life #1
Classwork Still Life #2
I'm sure, I'll find out in class today that homework #2 isn't done. Even though I think it is!
