“Finished” Class Painting #1

Touched up the first class painting, and here it is.

DSCN0895_crop_scaleHere’s what changed:

Added some cadmium yellow and raw sienna to the right side shade. Should be obvious where, the four yellowish panes of the lampshade. That helps a lot in making the shade turn the corner. Notice that i left all the little bits of underpainting and roughness to the painting of the panes. I think it helps the shade look “real”.

Repainted the cup. It looks so blue in this photo, but is not so glowing in person. It is very blue, however. Areas around the lower cup handle were readjusted, just added a little paint to the table top right there.

Painted in the book title and darkened the cover illustration just a bit.

Made the lamp base more brown, and with the yellow-brown background color (burnt umber, cadmium yellow, raw sienna, white) fixed some drawing eccentricities. And, BTW, the lampshade does tip over to the right like that in real life.
