Re: Water Jug

Welcome to the forum. I rotated and cropped your picture. I assume you were uploading from an Apple device. Unfortunately they retain the original orientation of the photo and often display wrongly.

Re: Water Jug

Welcome to the Acrylics Forum

Your jug is a very good study. Check the curve on the upper rim, as there seems to be an area where it flattens out; and there seems to be a small bump in the line of the shadow. I hope you post your work here as I think you have a very good sense of shape, scale, colour and depth. Do take advantage of the resources in the Information Kiosk available in the upper part of the front page.

Re: Water Jug

I think you've done very well with this .... take note of Colin's commented just to tidy things up, but well done!
You're very welcome here, so I hope to see more of your work soon!
Cheers, Maureen
