Gary wondered how I know what a piece will look like after it's fired? I don't always know. That doesn't seem to matter if I get the tones right. This tile is about 9 x 10 inches. I was typing this post earlier and I accidentally hit publish, hence the ghost post, sorry.
I may return to the painting class again this time around. Now that I'm using some of the painting techniques on my clay portraits and sculptures I can better understand what my instructor was trying to impart. I'm learning by doing as I go along.
I have more refining of light, medium and dark tones for this man. He seems to be contemplating some serious thoughts. How about you, what do you think when you look at his face? Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
