I don't know if I've mentioned it here, but I'm taking an art class (Introduction to Painting) at the local community college. It meets once a week from 5-10pm. I double majored in Art and English in college, but never took any painting classes. I decided to try it out. It's a lot of work. I'd forgotten just how much time studio classes require.
Since I'm spending so much time with brush in hand, I figure why not share the results with you guys. Here's my first assignment. We had to paint two pictures using only one color and white. The darkest value would have to be the color straight out of the tube. We had to do one painting of three eggs and then another of a white object. Each painting took about three hours.
For a first assignment, after only one class, I think they turned out pretty good. I'm not extremely happy with the cat creamer (it's actually much cuter than the picture indicates), but the eggs turned out pretty good I think.
