This cooking apple is another one my students will tackle. We will focus on the Edges, Shadow and Background.
I propped the apple up high so I could see the shape of it - lovely and fat. I wanted to convey the weight and size, especially compared to the 'Little Braeburn' I did a while ago.
I have decided to film some of my paintings, the progression of how I put the paint onto board and see the painting grow - it will be a speeded up sequence. I set up the camera today to have a go, it felt a little daunting with it over my shoulder watching every move! About 30 mins through my battery ran out! So I charged and came back to it. I will put the edited video on here once it's done. My husband is kindly helping me with it.
My palette of earthy colours.
You have captured the essence of this so English cooking apple. To have a camera filming over your shoulder....a-maz-ing!ReplyDelete
This shows your palette with the colours to the right and the mixes on the left. This puzzles me because since you are right-handed, I would have thought the colours would be either at the top or on your left?ReplyDelete
Hi Michael, a good question... my palette is big, about 2ft square and it's most comfortable to have my paint near my right hand, at the back or on the left side is too big a stretch. There is no set right way to do it just personal preference :-)Delete
I would love to see how you painted that - it looks greatReplyDelete
Fascinating! Husbands can come in useful occasionally! It was helpful to watch how you tackled the apple and the edges. I shall have to watch it again before painting in the lesson.ReplyDelete
Thanks Pat, glad the video was helpful, and I agree husbands are very useful!Delete
