Egg painting with Paul Foxton. Michele Clamp. Oil on paper. 5″x8″
I tinkered with a couple of rose paintings today and had a bit of time left so why not paint along with The Foxton and paint an egg. Mainly an exercise in mixing and blending but quite satisfying.
Apparently I was gone for a long time as James came up to find me and was very amused that all I was painting was an egg.

Radish. Michele Clamp on Wendy Artin Workshop
I will write more on the Wendy Artin workshop but here are the results to be going on with. First a radish!
And some preliminary sketches for the radish
And some sprouts! Who knew they were so difficult to paint?

And a preliminary sketch for the sprouts.

Next a kohlrabi!

Next some figs!
And a turnip!
And finally another radish. This really was a stinker. Not so bad in the cold light of day but still….

Pink Carnation Sketch. Michele Clamp. Watercolor. 8″x5″
Not a highly successful day today. I’m trying to convert the oil process back into watercolor and it’s tricky to say the least. A couple of false starts and this was the most successful.
And just for the record here are the rejects:

White Still Life with Lime. Michele Clamp. Oil on panel. 8″x10″
Second pass on this one. I think I’m probably done with this one although already I can see stuff to do.
White Still Life with Lime – Part 1
First pass on a white still life with lime. This is an exercise in painting close values. Pretty much everything is squeezed into a narrow value range which means a lot of simplifying and judging relationships. I’m feeling good about it so far – hopefully I won’t throw it all away tomorrow.
