I have had this jug in my collection of objects for years. I don’t know why I have never painted it before. I guess I thought it would be too difficult to try and paint the glaze, and the reflections, and make it look like it had light shinning on it.
In the end, I realized it was the same thing that I tell my students in my own classes; just paint what it is that you see. Have you ever noticed that it’s always easy to see those kind of lessons illustrated when you are looking at another person’s work?
