Session #037, Work #027

Up late after dinner out, yummy pizza, so I’m tired and I don’t feel like writing much. Easy painting, drawing was simple, I wasn’t being super focused, but the drawing still turned out well. I also did some color to value tests on this painting. If they are correct in value the brushes of color will disappear when I remove all the color from the painting, we shall see below.




My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color



How can I improve the drawing

Meh… easy drawing just two circles really. I’m sure if I was really up to it tonight I could have gotten it much more accurate.





How can I improve the values?

I forced the values to be a bit darker here since the last painting was blown out and too close to white. I think I over compensated on the apple though, it is too dark.

I like that some of the color brushed tests disappear when IĀ removeĀ all the color. The red on the apple values are way off, they don’t match what they are painted on.
