Hey, babe! You certainly got it right there. Lots of excuses ... brushes are crappy - they are too big for the Moleskine size page - I don't paint too well with people (or video cameras) watching. Anyway, this is it, for what it's worth. The video of the process is down there and if you are really quick you might catch a glimpse of my little mate.

Bowl in Reflection

Our teacher pushed us this week. We started out painting cut lemons in glass jars resting on a piece of brushed aluminium. What colour IS brushed aluminium, anyway?

Then he set up this big glass bowl of fruit on a large, gold framed mirror. Not only did the mirrow reflect the bowl but also the night darkness beyond the windows of the studio. Lots of very bright colours and the black of the outside darkness which really was black.

The last challenge was a beauty and we had so little time to do it. He filled some glass jars with liquorice allsorts, put them on top of a sheet of clear acrylic which was balanced on some empty glass vases on the mirror. AHHHH! To make things worse, I was trying out acrylics for the first time.

By a stroke of great good fortune, the Everyday Matters Challenge Mistress has made bowls this week's drawings challenge. I am sure the this picture counts.
