Another Master study (the last one for now), Cézanne's "Still Life with Blue Pot" from 1900-1906 in graphite and watercolor. It was among those few still-life watercolors noteworthy for their scale and brilliance, even when compared to his earlier achievements in this medium, and he painted these pieces near the end of his life.
.
.
I used the same media as he did + gouache on 4x6 index card (the blues attracted me to this as usual). Index card 24/61. Started it a few days ago, meant to post it before July but didn't get to finish till today. This needed more patience from me than usual. I'm just glad to have fulfilled the promise made to myself (to study one of these still life pieces) and did my best at it.

Day 30 of #quickkickjune #kickinthecreativeschallenge A month of  one colour sketch a day opened up ideas and loosened up my watercolour painting. Very useful challenge...and fun! It also helped me wind down after doing the #copyistjune where I did a portrait a day. See you in August as I'll be away doing other stuff in July!!

Here’s my last #copyistjune with @kickinthecreatives - Renoir’s Peaches - my copy is done with oil pastels and gouache and what super out of my comfort zone. 🤷🏼‍♀️🍑 Check our @rainey_day_reads ‘ version as well!

My last try for #copyistjune is a copy of Renoir’s “Peaches”. I wasn’t very happy with either of these.  I did the bigger one first and liked the peaches, but the scale and backdrop were off.  The smaller one was better, but not as detailed because I was trying to be loose, which I’m not good at yet.  Oh well!  It’s all about practice, right?  Check out my friend @marcia_furman who did the same painting, but much better! ............... @kickinthecreatives

A detail study of one of Michelangelo's sculptures he finished before he was thirty years old, his famous muscular portrayal of this giant-slaying hero and later on king, "David." (1501-4, Marble. Height 13ft 6in)
.
Ink on light watercolor wash on 4x6 index card. Index card 18/61. .
.
Practicing my cross-hatching again after seeing good results from my last set of portraits. I feel a little more comfortable adding depth this way to drawings--finally! No more excuses this time, a head-on confrontation sometimes is just what it takes, with the help of my old scratchy fountain pen, after many months of just watching @alphonsodunn and @wagonized approach this technique and reading their books few times! More practice and I'll be addicted to this, no doubt😆

Day 24 of #copyistjune #kickinthecreatives  A portrait a day. I'm trying out all kinds of techniques with this exercise! So many colours in this one! Pastel and pencil. It was harder than I expected to get the same effects!!

Day 21 of #copyistjune  #kickinthecreatives  His face appealed to me at first, but as I was drawing him I noticed his stubborn mouth and got to wondering who he was and what he was like. One source says it's a self portrait, another says anonymous artist. Whoever he was he just wouldn't look me in the eye!

My copy of Georgia O’Keefe’s “Red Poppy”. This was a really fun one and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  Check out my friend @marcia_furman copy of the same painting!  Original image found on Google Images #copyistjune @kickinthecreatives
