Homework: June 27, 2010

Since the task for this week is to work on rounded objects, I decided that tea pots would be another good subject to paint. In this painting, I had to make sure that I got the drawing correct. So, I worked out the drawing on the paper using terra rosa so that the proportions came out correct.

The toughest part of this painting was to simulate something that I knew was happening, but I couldn't see it. In this case, it was the back of the tea pot. I knew that the back was significantly in shadows, but, looking at the teapot on my stand, I couldn't see the variation in greys. So, I modified it a bit to make sure that I got my rounded teapot.

It worked well.
