Week 6 – Machine made objects

This has been a very busy week filled with family visits and traveling for Thanksgiving.  I haven’t had much time to paint but I managed one painting before we left and one while we were away.  The idea with machine made objects is to be able to portray symmetry.  Often it is fairly easy to get one side of an object drawn correctly but the other side is difficult to match.

For this one I chose a bowl from a local potter – hand made but on a wheel so I thought that would qualify as a machine – and a bottle of liquid – a challenge.

This second one is of little ceramic boxes given to my daughter.  Ellen and I have a little tradition when Valentines Day comes around.  We search through the bag of conversation hearts for the ones that say “Hug Me”.  We give them to each other in exchange for a hug.  The other hearts get eaten, the “Hug Me ” ones get traded.  How wonderful is that?

    I am in love with hearts- this is really pretty. Where to now with this?

    I have bought a Moleskine watercolor journal that I hope I can work in on a more regular basis. I realize now that the other sketch journal I have been using is just not suitable for water as the paper is not made for that purpose. I also think I’d like to take another similar class – somehow I need the discipline of just doing. I really think that is the reason I made good progress.
