Dinner for Two
Played around on this one. What could be more interesting than 2 birds showing up for Chinese food. Struggled on this as it isn't as painterly as I would have wanted. Unsure if this is just my style of painting or if I will ever paint differently from this. Only time will tell.
Going to take a break from painting pictures for a week or so as I am going to be moving forward with painting my kitchen cabinets. (fun?)
Things I learned:
1. You really got to do that Value map. I totally forgot to do it on this painting and I found myself struggling to get the right shadows and values for the bird in the background. Why did I skip it you ask? I was too in a hurry, and you just can't be.
2. It is okay to wait and think on a painting because the next day I came back and made some value changes which made it even better (I think...?).
