Plastic Bowl, Number 1

I have been working on this plastic bowl for three days already and could never bring it off -drawing problems mostly. By that I mean each of the three days I tried it anew, but wiped it down. Today's is very tight but is the best of the lot and a good place to begin a series of them. I figure if I do ten I should know the ropes. The interesting thing about this plastic bowl is that the rim sometimes picks up the color of something else. I didn't have the light in the right position this time for it to occur, but next time I will make it happen...the plastic is cheap and thin and provides the thinnest sliver of light. Also I am again on the black gesso and I really like it.


  1. Hi Jean,
    Welcome to our Texas group! This painting is just wonderful, love the white on white and all the lovely variations of whites you've achieved here. I'm adding myself as a follower, so I'll be sure to be back.

  2. I like your whites and the bowl looks really good to me! I also like your knife. The whole painting is a challenge with metal and clear plastic. You pulled it off!

    And as Angela said WELCOME!!
