Last week I mentioned I might paint the base color of each item, its predominant complimentary color. I didnt really choose that color too carefully, but definitely wanted it to be on the other side of the color wheel from the main colors. I worked mainly on the glass grapes and the apple. Kind of liking the effect. Still not happy with how sometimes the paint can be too transparent -- especially when trying to cover with a complimentary color -- as it looks a little on the brown side. Guess I will correct that in the coming weeks.
I have been taking classes with Al for over a year now. Every class has new students and a couple of the students have been in other classes with me. Bonnie is one who has been painting with Al for a long time. I am the only one who takes photos of my progress, so Bonnie had to get in on this photo.
She will probably shoot me when I tell her I posted her photo on my blog.
