Pottery 5 and 6 - Two Works in Progress

Today the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group had Neil Broadfoot as a guest instructor. He demonstrated how to do still life drawing and brought in a wide variety of subject matter.

He started us off with basic shapes and theory on how the shapes change when looking at an object at eye level, below eye level and above eye level.

Then gave us exercises to do with the light source on the different shapes and theory about highlight, light, reflected light, shadow and cast shadow.

By then it was time for us to break for lunch.

After lunch we worked on developing a composition and how drapery can lead the eye through a painting.

Pottery 6

I will post these paintings at a later date as each of them is completed.
