I wanted to practise my dimensions. With this painting, I tried to incorporate several concepts
Foreground, Mid-ground and Distance
Rule of Threes
And the Triangle shape
Here is the original
My Pros . . .
I am happy with how my Lemons turned out. And the way I managed to get some shading done on them I laugh at myself with the stairs. I don't know how I managed to get them going up instead of down, but I think that it still works ;-) I decided to do a terracotta pot instead of a basket weave. As the weave would be a bit more technical than I am up top just yet
I loved how I managed to get the wood of the table to look fairly natural
My Cons . . .
The shrubbery ended up looking like a big green sponge from a distance. Any suggestions on how I can improve on that?
