Malachite Bowl Demo

Every once in a while I like to post a series of stages leading up to the finish of a painting. These are the demo steps for the Malachite Bowl posted on 2/22/2010.


 First a sketch to work out the composition


 I grid the canvas with four small marks at the midpoint of each side and mark the center of the canvas so I can compose through my viewfinder.
 
Adding some color and value to make comparisons.
the finish.
