Thanks for checking in to see what this month’s project is! You can read January’s post here.
The theme for February was Light. This month was a bit easier than the last because I already had a painting in the works when I found out the theme! Handy! I am taking an acrylic painting class this semester as I finish up my Bachelor’s degree, and one of our projects was to paint a still life with only black and white. We had to concentrate on the light source (here’s where I brought in the theme) to make the lights and darks as strong as possible.
The painting above was done during our class time. We then had to create a second painting at home. Our teacher had recommended painting eggs, so I created a kitchen still life.I don’t remember ever really painting with just black and white. I use so much color with the face and body painting that this was a great learning experience!! Maybe I need to see about painting a face using just black and white…hmmm.
What project comes to your mind using the word “Light”?
