is jesus is speakers hello i'm a sea kaminski today we're going back into the kitchen and this painting is called breakfast anyone we're not going to scramble waves
and maybe by the time we're through we wish we had and that is all safe then again this theory number of fans all live forever wave very safe the crying light marvelous grants and poorest areas like this now i think they see sometimes you'll find it simple forms a much more difficult because it's it's rather difficult to create an effect with a form that is so
simple and so we salute the widow with colored fine now the spotlight ball with the eggs in first the gas in this corner and again we draw the square first like this this all has a very interesting let me wish we hadn't done it so interesting that you survive it hasn't been like that which his brother attractive is a little interest because you go into the plane the noble fine this goes down like this has caught the ball in like this on both sides and around at all the same as a top like that on his level next we have a lovely coffee pot that goes over in this corner and there again that has this kind of shape is yours there's lines as
possible that's what they're there for to guide you it has an interesting top like this has a little there has little thing on top that way it has a spot what else can i handle and there again it's an interesting part fb now we're objects it in front of that a plate and remember joined the back and six for is completely and then put the other objects in front of but this has tuned to think that
than just a wee bit like that fight now we have a plate here like this they were saying this in perspective so it's like that while in the middle and now on the sides this line goes right in the middle like that now because you were watching and i want you to be in to see what i'm going to put in the play i'm going to raise this and this is why this painting is so it's invaluable and so important it's very easy to take off with the paper like that i had to re shoot you don't have to but i wanted you to see the eggs in the middle it's a broken egg is very interesting and technique we have yelp like that and we have to shells
like this not in this when the shading of course helps and the nhl because it was broken and evenly we have little bits of things like that piece is showing ragged pieces of shell showing like that well we say that will make much more sense right now doesn't make much sense find that put the eggs in the bowl now please to outline your ace up like little soldiers this is a problem that we all have i do it myself so let's start with eggs on the bottom we have one like that and more like this as you know eighty or not perfectly round they have one and that's a little larger like that when going that way when going this way remember their in the ball so you must have some eggs that we only see part of the us but this one on top because that's underneath write
like they're having another one of here like this and then they see the back of one like that i think it's so oh well as an element hunter now doesn't it's now we have to honor to only at the base are on the table like this which brings down the color and completes the composition we have another one like this in french i have a feeling we could've done without those but thats are going to do it anyway if we have to suffer we do suffer for your art about how much i tell you how i simplified you will suffer but it's marvelous i resent paying a book is like having a baby was the pain is going to re do another here we are now we've got a drawing there are going to say that the light is coming from the left so we would shape the right side of that they carefully not to directing
they got very brash very lightly and go back onto a paper like this i don't want to lose your formative there to keep drawing and redrawing guild the scariest and especially anxious to get started thinking it is i love the paintings or the drawings and sepia think it arranged in this way and we have to help them and in classes one day we will do on just concede the fund as an experiment so so good good training save the inside israel to remember the lights coming from the right that shell is shaving inside like that us and the same thing here it's well and it's the only pay that didn't see much better shady oak the coffee pot will propel i think though it's it's a visual italian must think italians have all crooked parts of pottery but they
say that's par the charmer know like that and inside to handle that way i think that's all right now we are finished a drawing we know with a light coming from the star to pay as always we start with the background and we start with a dark turn in this case to start on the right side there's a very interesting study of color warm and cold towns and one of my favorite color combinations with lovely blue which is also a favorite of angola for years a lot of true that is marvelous yellow pickup oh weiner i just try not to lose your ball
especially if you're beginning saying if this gets to be a little worrying and what i want to do is to to get yours little to worry about as possible why you're creating it's a worthwhile thing to say if you're creating there's any foreclosure a lot about mm hmm polio really like this is flat stokes the airfreight of the potato and i and we do that by leo cullen across the bottom line is in this case cricket which goes
in the middle class things you will remember you get to do the same thing over again you will remember it when you get an experienced you can make your own changes but you know what you're doing and you have something to start from but for now the tail hear that like this right now but that's right this is
called townsend yacht broker yellow prison is not an unusually sophisticated palates it's a very ordinary color actually is an it's pretty standard is hold all brands of paint as a very familiar color and it's it's been mixed with white and a little arias for the light of fences at the white light michelob almost without exception we light it with light with white and maples yellow we never use white in a color without yellow because it creates a very pasty week saudi color we want a vibrant color and yellow jackets and vibrant and full of life let's skip and they're clean up line that we don't want like that so let's take some light
tone like there's some dark territory here i guess that was it i would like to end a little burnt orange which will be one of the colors in the painting and get a new again this is the beauty about the mixing your colors you can do this why a background as wet and i i recommend that picture painting harmonious invading all the objects with the background as part of a sin or eye shadows under article do that right now this
race i got a little bit late i'd been painting a while so maestro star much easier they flow better only from practice but when you've been painting a little while you have the same facility but the biggest areas if you're not flipping around like i am i mean what i'm taking anyway i just knew that the taliban's qatari coffee pot start with a dark turn like this go down this way and then like this
on top of this about the dark areas not getting any light i'm going down to a case now of course the wrestler part of behind a bluebell so naturally you don't you stop there i think michael debates with a little fatter than a plan that worry not looks like a kind of coffee pots that the old miners used is lemon the westerns you know i could find no don't tell me like there in bell which is
and now i turn like this i can state that out and just a moment for you so that looks for real there is a polite tone i'm going to outline that purple so you can see that it will be able to develop this a little more a little town and lighter right here that's like a little heavy like that how that outlined and in a little purple picked up some glue on the way in to emphasize the sake it's been the
point splayed pays place right here in the spell that they're unlikely that for just a moment let's go to the bow we started the dark tone on the right watch the lip terribly important to retain that you see what i mean about the blues with this with these towns how effective it is an interesting you start with a new town that got the dark down on the sign like an over time and put off that you've made a mistake which i've just done
like this this is the dark tower were still with a dark turn on this it tells him know what we never makes no without a little are arranged to keep it a little bit gray down as character no tell in the bowl hype this uncritically not just a moment but for now keller on all the towns like this lovely flowing strokes like this oh i'm going to outline in that little purple and especially around the eggs like that prof blyth on the right side
going to emphasize this one ok let's say that for the moment there would connect their pocket i'd like to work on the eight fifth at something that you haven't done before and we've done vessels and one had him so much a concern all lana worry about this idea i must do this right now let's go to the eggs we start with the dark tone on the right side as a second set of the law as we start on the right side like this
such a dark turn around the egg in the shape of a like that was the first thing you do which is shadows and always always work from dark to light also retains the shape are going to use a little town on the other side before we do that let's get a lighter like this a light is coming from the left that i remember that one of my students didn't want change they should so she was allergic to the city not going to weaken just going to pay them so as an irish you had that prerogative you can say it shows
to paint them on the grounds that it makes me plain sick there're so she entertaining our interests that she like very much let's bring them over oops out is made look like eggs to present challenges so but they do this as the general shape of them ann and there are brown eggs and i don't wanna hear about them right now though now we're going to outline those dates in their purple we do without purple green room when lee dargan mccullough we always add purple it's much better darkly age when i was learning no one told me so i added a number which is brown of course ended up with a dirty brown color or with prior
book a dark and your color without destroying it but that's another interesting dimension to your painting always use purple as a darkening agent remember the synthesizer london eggs were like that eggs on the right try to not in the story is a little problem here it's very dangerous and that they can be staying up on and forget be very careful heaven lying down precious and three games that do this but nobody will believe you had better do it right
now that outline those little purple i played i went and dagger points a little weak unemployment is an off color it off right he came to power but we can do it and it's much easier for you because you're either stand right senator clinton's failed auto played like this first with this with a white tent in this case the dark tone of white like that barrier
our highlight on the exit are played out like this regrettably egg yolk yeah welker on one side like this and then we'll meet in towns like that's a very good a very fresh egg and then the naples yellow on the other side like that and they show a sustained effort just an island and touring the eggshells the light is coming from the lab and this creates a shadow inside so we're going to do this and that's why it's important to have purple underneath i got the
part and then shaded little bit to the delight and in about a moment you'll see exactly what i'm trying to do now looks very strange line of blaine visiting my goodness it's a way to finish it and let the shelves but the shelves nothing they're now i think light town or the white turbaned they're going to put the theory of a shell like this go around the edge like that michel repairing it on the inside it doesn't have any fragments but it but they like is on the dark action is on the inside his ally does not get in there
and it's like that around the soulful that and say this a little bit cause it is a little light here like that i want to put the highlights on the i think i get the idea i want to give you the highlights iran on objects on the egg is the spot liquid in there and here to highlight bible with a loan labels yellow please don't use pure white in anything and the nhl and believe it or not has a lot of naples yellow into it the globe
coffee pot has highlighted that and i really would like to touch up ice about it's a little weak points there we are and i hear the life of our ancient right here like this well that's it for today for a signature senators
