Daily Painting No.42 – Still life / Dragon Toy on a Curvy Box (unfinished)

toy dragon still life

I learn a valuable lesson in painting this still life. If you only have a hour and a half to paint, don’t pick a detailed object that will take you three. I was setting up the still life and say a dragon toy sculpture on the side and said ‘Why not? I painted a elephant a few nights before! this shouldn’t take too long”. Yeah, right. I only got to the chest of the dragon toy before the evil timer started ringing. The box shape also needed some more tlc. On the plus side, in a few more paintings I should graduate from just painting matte objects to adding reflective objects into the mix. That’s going to be a lot of fun.

I also was getting a headache organizing the paintings by date, often getting confused and giving paintings on two different days the same creation date. so I made it numerical instead. It also lets me see who commented on which painting better.

Fell free to critique and comment
