Christmas cacti and turtles.

Today's class was about the layering structure in a painting. Using efficiency instead of drudgery. Using transparent layers to create a complex effect. Its actually a very straight forward process creating a complex look. One thing we were supposed to take note on was how objects interact with each other. Also to look for objects of the same nature repeat themselves in the painting creating a very cohesive piece. I struggle with using the same brush strokes throughout out my painting and it was suggested that I switch to a much small brush to force myself to make different strokes. Each of us painted the same Christmas Cactus but they all had a very individual look. This painting was layed out in alizerin crimson.
