wanted to play around big with the knife today. seeing how the sun hasnt shone around here for more than a few hours in weeks, here's what i got.

in the cape school technique its very important to describe form by color changes. everytime an objects surface points in a different direction, the color should change, if only a bit. you have to learn to see that slight difference in value/color when its barely even noticeable. great training.

jeff- thanks for the compliment! i love Susan Sarback still lifes and really hate her landscapes. her still life work is phenomenal. on the other hand i really love the landscapes (especially when there's some buildings in em) by this cat mahorney. he rocks!

francesca- thanks! i knew you'd like that "cape" technique! us cape school folks are a sucker for the way the painting shows form turns with color changes, not necessarily with value.
