Painting homework assignment. Create a background with two layers of paint. Paint an object on top. (Wish the photos were better. They don’t quite capture the richness of the colors.)
I loved the greens and raspberries of this background. The gourd needs some sort of grounding though. It looks like it is floating.
Painted this one with just window light and a flashlight aiming light at the base. Darkish but good practice.
First draft in my “sketchbook”. The green & yellow background was left over paint from an old project.
The pleasure is in the doing – learning to see the lights and the darks and learning how to mix color. Each project is a learning experience.

Are you using acrylics, and do you go to art classes? You have good colour combinations.
Yes acrylics. Just started my second 6 week class. And thank you!
