I was focusing on value with this painting. The metallic surface and drapery was a lot of fun. My painting teacher, Kate Bollons commented, “There are two kinds of painters: Those that love painting drapery and those hate it.”
I definitely fall into ‘love painting drapery’ camp. It’s fun to use both sides of the brain to interpret drapery. The Left Brain for figuring out the structure, light and texture and the Right Brain for how treat it with a painterly effect.

And for the record, it was Kate’s grandmother’s kettle–not mine.
