Apple on a Blue Square



I've been following Carol Marine who has great tutorials on the  Daily Paintworks - ArtByte Tutorials. I felt inspired to paint after viewing a couple of her demos. It's best to start small and do a quick painting using a simple still life setup and a limited palette. Apples are always a good subject.

Sugar Jar


I haven't drawn or painted in a while. Thought I'd jump in and warm up by drawing this complicated sugar jar. I like the design of the container but it's not very useful. It's suppose to measure out a teaspoon of sugar each time it's tilted but once the jar in half empty it takes about 4 or 5 tilts to get a teaspoon of sugar.
