The eggshell? Just reminds me of easter.
How could I paint the pepper mill without painting the salt shaker. Tomorrow I'll be doing a painting demo at Glenlyon Norfolk School from 1 to 4 at the Victoria Sketch Club Show. In case anyone wants to come visit. I will bring my set up. It's quite portable. I don't know what I'll bring to paint. Maybe a jar of dandelions. Hmmmm.
|My set up, beginning and finished.|
Raw eggs in a glass always reminds me of the movie "Rocky". (It dates me I guess). For a while after that movie came out I knew teenage boys who started drinking raw eggs and working out. Hmmmm.
I was supposed to go out painting with friends this morning but they backed out due to "rain phobia". So I moved on to plan B (pears). Well here they are. I painted them with my left hand (except for the finest details). I am pleased with them. I think when I paint with my left hand I really take my time and plan each stroke carefully.
Here's my set-up in case anyone's interested. Very simple and comfortable. I like to sit down to paint small paintings. Just a back stage made of foam core taped in the corner. I have a black foam core stage as well. And a few scarves I clip to it for a nice background sometimes. My only lighting today was from the north window to my right.
I'm practicing painting with my left hand. I want to train myself to be able to paint with both hands. As a back up in case I sprain my wrist or something. Could ward off carpel tunnel eh. It's only my second day. I've been writing letters and doing everything with my left hand I would normally do with my right. It's kind of fun. I also think it could speed up my painting process or add a new flavour to it.
