My sweet friend Miss Pam gave me her old cast iron kettle she had painted red. I did a value study of it this morning trying to distinguish the planes created from a single light source. This isn’t the first time I have ever done this but it has been a while and squinting my eyes for a long time isn’t good for crows feet. Art or vanity. What a choice. (If you don’t know, squinting your eyes takes out extraneous details in your subject allowing you to see value.)
This lady is a puppet I found at a antique/junk store many years ago. I don’t know anything about her but I am guessing she is Indonesian. Anyone who knows better, let me know. I did a value study of her in the same indigo as the kettle and then added color on top. The doodle-ing is just for fun. There is a new name for doodle-ing, it is called Zentangles.
