This week's DailyPaintworks Challenge was to choose a white ceramic piece and place it on a printed fabric or similar ground. The idea is to paint the reflecting colors and patterns in the correct VALUES. The hard part is that the value shifts are not necessarily dramatic, but very subtle making seeing them in the first place very...well...challenging! To me, value is what makes a successful painting. or not, so this was such a great exercise to practice this crucial skill. I need to do this type of thing more often to train my eyes to really "see" what's there.
