Blue vase


Back to Monday night art class. The teacher brought out a number of items to set up in a reference, some of which I have seem at least once before. I have drawn the red enamel bowl before but the opalecent blue vase is new. I liked the way the shapes are contrasted and the the colours complemented each other. She had set them on a lime green cloth and I had real trouble 'seeing' the colour of the shadows. I'm not sure that I got it right.

Hi Robyn, what I like about these is the way that you are capturing the curvature of the bowl and vase. You've done a good job on a what on face value appears to be a simple subject, but is in reality quite tricky.
