Got My Eye on You
Click Here to Bid (5x7in.)
I've had this big orange pig sitting around my studio for a while, and I'm pretty sure I've only painted him once before. What a shame!
I had a friend painting with me in my studio for a few days last week. I was telling her about my 10-minute apple exercise and we decided to do it together for practice. I started with an apple and then moved on to a bottle. And even though I've painted hundreds of each, I still learned stuff.
What did I learn? Well ... shadows might be even lighter than I thought. Edges are really important. Lost edges on glass makes it look more realistic. But most importantly, I just got into the hang of painting these things. I am tempted to start each day with an exercise like this. I recommend it.

The apple looks so cheerfully unaware that it might be snack-o'clock some time soon. Lovely form on the peckish pig.
Just love that orange ish pig!! Also love the 15 min thing...I have done that, and yes it helpes! Now I just need to do it...regularly! ! :~
Carol, I'm trying to figure out where you posted on the '10 minute apple exercise'-- can you point me there? I'd like to read about that...
Thank you, all! Jan, here's the link to the 10-minute exercise: http://www.dailypaintworks.com/challenge/the-ten-minute-challenge/7
