Painting Funky Perspective
But can you copy what you see without any special grid techniques? And does the photo itself even convey the shape of the jar accurately? When trying to paint realistically, when is it okay to assume things? When is it okay to lie to the viewer for the sake of the composition?
Hopefully we'll cover this during our next art class - Vermeer would have had a lot to say on this topic. Too bad he can't be our guest speaker. Stay tuned for classes in Chicago via our beloved Meetup.com.
