Journal of My Work-in-Progress: Painting and Photography
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. It's a journal of sorts. It gives me a place to show my work-in-progress for my painting and photography. Comments are welcome --- add one at the end of an entry or email me at BarbBlumer@gmail.com.
For this painting, I made a detailed drawing in charcoal then fixed it. It is a more complicated subject than fruits so I drew the whole shebang*. It might have been overkill but I knew the basket was going to be challenging to paint so I decided to go ahead and figure it all out. I think it will make painting more relaxing. We'll see. I've never painted a basket before. There are many changes in direction of light which means the values will change frequently. So, I have been thinking about how I am going to approach it.
* This is an American phrase from the 1920's meaning the whole thing, or all of it.
