White on White

"White Cups"  Acrylic  8x8" Purchase Info
Today I took a one day workshop on painting whites. There were several still life setups in the room to paint from, all white on white. I chose the cups. It is so fascinating to see all the various shades of subtle colored greys - they are actually there if you look for them, but elusive unless you keep comparing different parts of the setup while painting.

Thanks gals! its a really interesting challenge getting the values right, they lie in so narrow a range.

I love the fact that you took a workshop!
I love to learn and continue to learn. Seems the more I learn the more I can teach.
Glad to hear, too many times I hear a workshop instructor say... oh, I've never taken a workshop....

You do rock!!
