Still Life Homework

1st painting homework of the semester. Had one week to finish a still life for my figure painting class, not the kind of homework I was expecting in this class. Lucky enough to get Henry Yan as my teacher, watching his amazing demos is reason enough to take his class.

Values and color mixing are still major challenges, but pretty happy with this one. Structure problems on the bowl set aside. Trying out Terpanoid as my thinner insted of just the liquin, and really happe with the results. Easier and more fluid brushwork. Next step is to buy some linseed oil and mix my own medium!
