Still life

Using watered down gouache to create the shape of the vase. Concentrating on the shadows made from the light above is difficult. so now moving on to charcoal to create a little texture .

My shape isn’t right yet but as I work with the charcoal I hope to resolve that.

I have taken a photograph of my still life as the painting has developed.

I can now use this photograph to get really close and see the details on the pot

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
