Patrick: Pencil Holders and Pencils

I feel like I’m on the home stretch with this painting while I work on all the background items.

Painting these pencils is going to be a lot of fun with a ton of focus. In order to make them look believable and not just a mass of orange and yellow I really need to focus down on all the specific shapes. I don’t have to get super detailed but I do need to make sure that each brush stroke is describing something well. While at the some time trying not to get lost.

What went well?

I completed the pencil holder which was harder than I thought. It was difficult to get this awkwardly shaped pottery piece to look as thought it took up space and had form.

What didn’t go so well?

I have a busy day today so I only spent an hour on this painting.

What did I learn?

Focus is key for very complex and busy areas of geometric shapes.


Today’s Sketch’s

I drew kiddie so fast that I had time to start another sketch.
