I'm beginning to understand colour. It's so damn hard to get right 😅😂. Practice with one of my favourite things: portraits. Took a long time with this one trying to get the face structure right, as well as having the colours look natural. Overall I learned a lot from this piece, and I'm excited to use what I've learned in future projects :) #artistsoninstagram#digitalart#portrait#colour
Day 18 of #marchmeetthemaker is Mistakes/Lessons and ceramics is choc full of both - but every mistake is a valuable lesson and keeps our work improving.
Porcelain in particular is a tough mistress and you can be sure that any small error will find you out, if not immediately, definitely by the final firing! Like this lovely big bowl which had the tiniest hairline crack in the centre - too small for the naked eye almost, but it was there all the same.
But the upside of this mistake is that each November I sell all such seconds at the studio half price and that really makes people happy.
