Talking Copper Pitcher Study

Out of the CP Solution Book, here is my version of one of the studies in there:



It's on Strathmore Bristol, approx. 6 x 6 or so, Prismacolor CP.

Very nice pitcher, did you use your erasers yet ?

I found out something else yesterday. I had this big glob of solidified rubber cement (I think I am related to a pack rat) hanging around. Well, I was doing a drawing and messed up the ear on a lion, well I tried the rubber cement blob and it worked great even on the pen line.

Miss Mouse: Thanks And yes, I used the typewriter eraser on this one, to clean up the edges and also to lift out a few highlights and such along the way. It works wonderfully!!! Took a bit to get used to it, cause the eraser is much harder than what I've used before, but after the first few tries, I was tickled pink at the results!!! Don't have any rubber cement lying around here, has that been added to the removal tips post yet??? Sounds like something else to try! LOL

Phil: Thanks I really struggled with the highlights on this one, I drew it several times before I started with the colors to make sure they looked right.

TeAnne: Thank you, will do

Lulu: Thanks The colors & the order were: I started with Black Grape and did the value study this way. (I think that part took me the longest...lol) Then I added Terracotta over all the black grape, and then the most shocking color of all, Pink goes on next. It warmed the coppery color right up and was just amazing to watch. Pale Vermillion was used just on the front then, to accent the big highlight, Tuscan Red was used on the inside of the pitcher and on the handle shadows, and inside those tiny little rims, then Indigo Blue on the inside of the pitcher as well as in the shadows, on the handle, and on the top rim. Jade Green was used on the sides of the pitcher, though I didn't really notice any changes caused by doing this, I did it anyways cause that's what the book said to do . Then Sunburst Yellow was used in the highlights to make them really shiny. All colors were from Prismacolor.

TJ: Thanks I love the look of copper, I need to get some of my own now and try from scratch! Glad it looks like copper to ya!

Ivy, you are just getting too good!
You must have much more patience than me, doing studies of reflective things drive me mental. It deffinately looks coppery for sure. You've got a really nice individual style with those CP's... very soft, yet effective.

sherville: Thanks At this point, it's all experimentation with me, since I'm still new to them I don't know if patience or dog-eared determination made me do this one...LOL. It was such a lovely pot, I couldn't resist giving it a go!

Thanks for the run-down of the colours Ivy - really interesting using pink in the line-up. I look forward to more of your 'studies'

Lulu: You're quite welcome Yes, when the pink was added onto the terracotta, it was one of those moments that made me re-think how colors really do affect each other. As a result, I've been driving myself crazy now doing 'test swatches'. LOL. Great for learning those hidden secrets that make you go "A-ha! Why didn't I think of that before???" LOL
