1st Photo - me blocking in the shape of the teapot.
2nd Photo - Tim has placed center lines, vertical and horizontally to make sure the easy side is equal and the top of the lid centered.
3rd Photo - Tim placing color below the pot that will be echoed in the pot as well as reshaping the bottom of the pot
4th Photo - Tim began placing darks
5th Photo - Tim is laying in background strokes. This is where I left off painting the pot today.
6th Photo - Tim is studying another class member's self-portrait.
7th Photo - Tim is placing darks at the base of a class member's pot, to ground it.
The students would paint for awhile then Tim would demo for us on a student's painting to emphasize a point or show us how or what to do. What struck home with me today is the deliberate strokes Tim would paint. He never hurried, almost like watching a graceful ballet dancer. He would study the subject then place a stroke. Another point that was emphasized for me, was that if I hear the brush on canvas then I'm not using enough paint (unless I'm dry brushing?). The paintings are left in the studio for the next class session.
All in all a terrific day. Now to apply what I've learned.
