Reply To: Painting in the shadow

Thomas Blanchard

Thanks Sandra.   When doing the watermelon shadow it was completely dry.   I think I worked to much trying to soften the edge and it worked my bottom paint loose.  A shadow that close is usually sharp so I should just leave it!   I’ve only been painting about a year and am totally self taught by google, youtube and taking online classes.  I need to be more confident in my stroke for the shadow and let it be!   Thanks again for your tips.
