Day Two

My thoughts on this painting: Gaaaaahhh!

Okay, so I got a wee bit frustrated. I found a yellow rubber glove and thought it would be fun to paint. Fun, ha! I spent about an hour on it.

I think I need to focus on finding more definite boudaries between light and shadow. I am also trying to paint with a lot of color. The painting itself is more colorful than the photo displayed here. My crappy camera is a convenient scapegoat.

I think tomorrow I might do a black and white painting. It is a good exercise because it forces the painter (in this case, me!) to distinguish between color and value, which is actually a fairly tricky thing to do.
