orange and rice bowl

I started with a tonal approach. I like how the light breaks up the darks in this composition.
I'm ready to start the design on the bowl. Most beginners make the same mistake I did for years. They try to paint around the design rather than having the confidence to lay the design on top.

Orange and Rice Bowl

I love painting this little rice bowl. I have painted it several times. Each time it shows me a different side to itself. ( That's quite a feat for a bowl)

Gorgeous work! I love the luscious orange against the gray background. Excellent use of warm against cool colors. Keep up the good work!
