IVP4406: Methods & Materials (6 & 7) - painting on canvas

what a shock i had when i stepped into the studio and realised that it was still life painting lesson... =S 

am thankful for these super bright light bulbs which created super obvious highlights 

subject for the day.... we need only paint 3 items... =) 

teacher's demo

grounding with "any-oh-how"colours

sketching with 'any-oh-how' strokes

'any-oh-how' colour blocking  

it's amazing how talented people can just create super pretty pieces effortlessly and any-oh-howlly la

i was like stressed to the brim at every step.... even the mixing of colours.... =S 

view from my angle 

sketching seems easier though - thanks to miss seck's class... =) 

now then i realised that my painting is super illogical la....
i din draw the blue flask yet i drew its reflection on the silverish blue flask.... wahahahahaha..... wonder if i can add it in in the next lesson... =S

Lesson 7: continuation from lesson 6

A 5 hours lesson to paint the next layer and the next layer and i think another layer.... =S

 Yeah!!!! managed to cover up my phantom flask... =) 

final work after spending at least 7 hours on it over 2 lessons..... realised that i am super ADHD.... i cant stay focus on doing art for such long hours in one stretch.... i gave up trying to see the 'light' and just randomly painted streaks down my silverish blue metal flask.... and i just have to blend everything together when in fact, i wasnt supposed to so as to show the 'light'... ;P 

classmates' work for reference and comparison... 
incomplete flask at the corner but who cares when the other two are so damn real-looking lo.... =)   

can feel the pain in the eye starring at the orange light that's 'reflected' off the flask right????
