Rebecca's Small Ceramic Basket


Rebecca's Small Ceramic Basket
Originally uploaded by linfrye
My friend and I went to the outlets after work and spent a good amount of time getting a jump on holiday purchases.

I had less time than normal to sketch, so I settled on a small, seemingly easy, quick thing to paint ... HA! I was challenged firstly by overhead lighting, and then Rebecca's white basket itself -- by its small size (less than 4" high), odd shadows and folds .... I don't think easy and quick EVER relate to painting something white!

I have one almost exactly like this except it has a plaited handle. Hmmm, reading your post again, I think mine is probably a wee bit bigger too. You've done a really nice job with this.

Yes, I remember, white is SO hard to get just right but you've done it!! Love the shades and lines again -- you just keep getting better and better. This was a difficult subject.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Nice drawing; shades and lines. I know what you mean about difficulty finding time to draw; now I find time to draw but not to post! Oh well...

I also know how 'easy' white is. But you did a wonderful job of making it look easy.

I love how the cool tones blend to warm in this - gorgeous!
