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 I remove all the color. The red on the apple values are way off, they don’t match what they are painted on.
