The teaching video that Kevin put out used a pear, a pot, and a vase, so I tried to get those three objects as well. My “pot” was really an upside down yogurt can (same as last time), my pear was a real pear (I lucked out, apparently I had some pears in my fridge, or else I might have tried an apple, but it wouldn’t have been quite the same), and a vase, but mine was not quite the same as his flower vase, with its thin neck. Ah well, it can’t be perfect.
Before starting the exercise around 4:30, I started (maybe around 3 ish?) by setting up the spreadsheet we got from the last lesson, which I didn’t use last time:
I made a list of all the objects I’m thinking of using for the proportional drawing exercises in the beginning of block 2:
And I took some time to make those cones. The pink one is definitely imperfect, the red one was made from tracing a large-mouth bowl to get a circle, and then cutting the radius and wrapping it together.

Total time spent:
- I started at 3:30pm ish and ended around 5:50
- But I took some time to find the still life objects.
If I were to start this painting over right now, what would I do differently?
- I think I might have chosen a different measurement as my unit of one. Maybe the height of the pear instead of the horizontal line of the mouth of the vase.
This is the final painting I submitted for grading:
Based on this still life setup:
I submitted the assignment at around 6:33pm on 6/25, and got a response at TK.
