This week we painted from photos. This painting is largely unfinished, I had a difficult time trying to achieve proper values, so I labored over certain areas for far too long and ended up doing most of the work in the last 10 to 15 minutes of our painting time. I plan to revisit it this one later on.
What’s pretty funny, is that I was the only student in class who did not use a landscape or architectural photo to paint from (haha)! This idea has been in my head for quite a while, as I am quite fond of Wayne Thiebaud‘s work and he is very well know for his paintings of cakes and other sweets.
