We started working with transparent
mason jars today. Simple arrangements to be painted expressively.

elipse-and-jar

An ellipse gets full as we turn our eye level down. An ellipse gets narrow as we turn our focus to eye level.
And I talked about the importance of edges when we paint. I demoed a wet on wet edge and the movement you can create with a soft brushed edge-pulling paint away. I also showed you a cut or chiseled edge, working wet over a dry edge. This is more crisp and graphic when finished. Some edges you want in focus and some areas of your composition are best left vague or ambiguous with soft edges and less focus.
Golden Roses is now loaded onto the Demo page for quick reference.
