I had a lot of fun painting this because I've never used a palet knife before and I actually like using the palet knife better than a brush. I really found out a lot about myself as an artist while I painted this and I learned a lot. I really thought a lot about the shapes of color that was reflected on my shoe. I itemized when it came to this painting to get the reflections just right. Steph Carper did a really good job with this painting because she showed a lot of reflections and color in the black shoe. I chose to put my shoe on the left side so you can see the shadow of the show and shoelace. I like the size, view, placement of this painting very much.

For my tall glass of water oil painting I considered the size, view, placement. I put the glass in an interesting place and made the size of it interesting. I really thought of the water as shapes of dark and light colors. I also created a sense of transparency. My ellipses and and viewpoints are correct and consistent. My paint colors are very much clean and clear. I also completed the painting in the allotted time given to me. The object that I chose reflects that I like music. I was very focussed on my work the entire time I was doing it. I achieved a believable illusion of transparency while doing my oil painting sir.
