Gay painted the demo below, then we spent the day painting small studies (about 30 minutes each).
Gay started with the basic drawing:
Started with darks, and as usualy takes each object to relative completion.
The finished study:
This one is mine, I painted a section of the same still life set up.
Another of my 4 studies today. I’m happy with the watermelon color, but had problems with the drawing of the brass pot behind…It meets the slice of melon in an awkward way.
A blah study for me. Nothing reallying happening. I struggled with the cup.
My last study of the day. I’m happy with the color harmony here. Exhausing day!
