one of the best parts of my week is being in the studio on saturday afternoons.

i knew we were going to be painting a still life, alla cezanne, and i was very excited about this.  i mean, how hard could it be to paint some apples and oranges..

well in our case, it was an apple, a grapefruit and a pear to be exact.

we went through a very brief colour theory lesson (all in a matter of 15 minutes which could easily have been an entire course).

then the practical session came next.  easy peasy, right? a little red, a little green, a little yellow and orange.

ah.  not so much.

fuck.  i suck.

value, temperature, chroma...  better get more practice in.  good thing dom did a big shop this weekend, told him to load up on the apples and pears and grapefruits.  ::))
