Dear perfect painters, this week we are painting a silver spoon and are using a different approach, starting with graphite and building up all the deeper tones and then finishing with a light watercolour bronzing glaze. This is a nice approach for similar objects but also something new to add to your sketchbooks. After painting the spoon we continued by adding a beautiful Clematis flower and leaf. In this project I start the demonstration of the flower and leaf with a short tutorial on drawing them from life. Individually these are nice short projects which can be attempted by all levels, these will be great to fit in and around busy life schedules. All can be done as single studies or altogether, why not play around and see what composition you can come up with.
Hope and sunshine to all.
