View Full Version : The Bowl

04-07-2012, 02:05 AM
For lack of time and so much distraction lately this is the best name I could come up with.
I was doodling with roses, had a vase...then ended up playing with the masking tools and started a new painting.
I enjoyed working with stencils, layers and the filters for an iridescence and mat texture.

Nicely done Alexandra, love the bowl colours.
If I could make one little suggestion and that would be to darken the shadow immediately under the bowl just a little more to anchor the bowl to the base.:)

The bowl is so well done and I like the contrast with the background.

Amanda, Katie, Steve, and Mike, Thank you dear friends. This was really fun to make.
Steve, wouldn't it be great if we could all get together and watch one another? What a fantastic learning experience it would be! I appreciate your kind words dear friend.

Great choices of complements, either color and concreteness. A most elegant and well executed one!
