Plastic Bowl Number 2

This bowl is a bear. I am trying to do my "welcoming with affection" all things, including the bowl, but I admit to gritted teeth. Also, I used a 3/4 inch flat brush so I couldn't manage too much detail. I understand now that the wide brush makes you first grasp the desired shape in your mind and with practice all the correct shapes fall together to make the form. "Fall" is the operative word, which requires an overview of the relationships of parts. Am still liking the black gesso.


  1. The effort is invisible to me. I think the bowl is magnificent! (Said entirely without irony, I promise.)

  2. Wonderful job with color and reflective light.

  3. I understand gritted teeth, but your bowl looks good! The cut tomatoes are really good, too!

  4. The values in those tomatoes are perfect! The cut slices look almost translucent. You did a great job on the bowl.
