Made it back!  

Painted & sketched the past 2 days with my best friend!  We had a wonderful time practicing sketching.   We started on oils but my friend was too impatient & wanted to do sketching with ink.   She a birdwatcher  & wants to start a sketch book journal of birds.  So we practiced & played around with ink & watercolor.

  1. The ink and watercolor are beautiful! You both must be quick sketchers.

  2. The orange really looks like it has been attacked by the knife – there is a great rawness to it – and the knife lies there pretending nothing has happened. Not sure about the background though, just above the orange in particular.

      Thank You! Any suggestions? I painted out the plate last night with raw umber. I got this lesson from a vintage book by Joseph Dawley. His suggested colors didn’t work well. I do think his Dawleys paintings are fabulous!

  3. I thought the plate looked fine and looking at it again the dark foreground works. Perhaps a lighter background to denote a planar shift behind the orange with some shadow under the plate as it appears to be floating. Try a few coloured swatches held against the painting before you decide
