Florals Week 3 Day 1

Wearing my Bob and Peapod shirt.

I don’t know what it is about Mondays but I just felt blah today.

Anyhow, this is the first painting of the day.  I was so thankful for something different than the standard liquid opal we’ve been using. I know what you’re thinking, “liquid opal” sounds nice, am I right?

Trust me it’s nowhere near as cool as it sounds.  I thought it would be this magical opalescent medium. Nope. It’s basically liquid white tinted grayish lavender.  That’s it, that’s all.

Moving on,

I quite enjoyed the second painting of the day.  I made an error of judgement and placed my floral elements too high so I was left with a big empty spot at the bottom of the canvas. I didn’t feel like covering it with leaves and such as we usually do so I decided to throw a vase in. I was the only one in class to do this, so yeah,  this girl is doing her own thang!

I’ve never painted “glass” before so I winged it. I did get a pointer or two from my instructor, but little did I know that we are actually painting a glass vase tomorrow, so it will be very interesting to see how badly I messed up today.
