#2 Any Container Will Do
Okay then, second one down. The main object with this one was to try to see the colors in that can. (I think it was a can of pinto beans. Admit it, you were curious) The more I looked, the more colors there were. Rather fun, actually. Metal in general, and especially this steel can, usually has sharp edges of reflections and color changes, so blending was at a minimum. The mantra was: "see a color, mix it, lay it down. See the next color, mix it, lay it down."
My other objective was to AVOID drawing little lines for the rings around the can. I think that part worked.
This is thicker paint than I'm used to, and I still wanted to get more darks in the flowers than I have. But it was time to stop!
I'm leaving this afternoon for one more day of painting at Ghost Ranch. Weather looks good!
