|Vase and Pear Study/oil on board/ 6 x 6/ $100|
As part of this improvement, I have also been reading and recently read that Sargent, as a young painter spent 10 hours a day learning to paint and he did this for years. Helps, to be reminded that learning to paint takes time and effort.
Ib this painting my objective was to paint the continuation of objects: one thing leads into the next. I addition, I am working on understanding edges. Therefore, I painted the form and cast shadows as a single unit and then added reflected light.
