Here is the bowl thingy I tried to paint along tonight. I lost connection and could not reconnect again.
My bowl is not lifted from the table and looks unnatural (the bottom foot part) I will have to wait for the replay to fix it and also add the peppercorns.

My mix thingy looks, really really odd  :2funny:

I think it looks pretty good and accurate. I should know because I used to sell these things to pharmacists and chemists.
Those thingies are called "mortar and pestle".
I wish my hand was as steady as yours so I could paint with that precision. Someone called my work free flowing and it is because my hand shakes when I try to be precise. I guess that's what happens when you get old.

Good job Maryna, look forward to seeing the final version.
I have a wooden mortar & pestle that I use for blending fresh spices. Wouldn't be without it.

You were brave to paint along with the live session!
Your painting looks good.  :clap: Are there any changes you intend to make?

Topdog, not sure, will have to watch the replay, but I think the foot needs work and that mix stick thing (the top)  ;)

I honestly have to say, don't think I will paint along again while the class was on, was great, but I missed allot for I at times took longer at one section and then missed what Nolan was doing. Think that is also why my bottom (foot) part don't look right.

Anyway, great fun. I had such a mess afterwards,  :2funny: and used soooo many brushes.

Maryna you did very well to do the paint-a-long  :clap: :clap: :clap: Lovely bowl. Unfortunately ou have made a very common mistake and that is to draw the foot-piece as a flat line.

Many draw it that way because they are thinking at it as sitting on a flat table. You are looking slightly downwards towards the table and the bowl must have a rounding to the bottom line.

Make it the same as the bottom rounding of the bowl itself and it will automatically look right.

Maryna,   :congrats:  for attempting to paint along!

I'm amazed at what a nice job you did of blending the drapery at the back!  It's awesome!  I was wishing I could be looking over your shoulder as you painted along.

Nice job!  There's nothing there you can't perfect.
