Only one oil painting update today...  

Today I colored in the shadows and tried to touch up the objects as best I could, since it was the last day that we would have studio time to work on our oil paintings.  I'm very frustrated with the purple mug; it was drawn badly, and since I don't have time to scrape it off and start over I'm stuck with a mug that isn't shaped correctly and has wonky shading.  At least the white I added made it look a little more 3D; the ellipse on the bottom edge is off, though, so no matter what I do it isn't going to look correct.

The yellow bowl and the apple look much better, compared to last week.

Did you expect your first effort to come out perfect? I think the mug looks just fine.

Of course I did - I'm always perfect! Just kidding. But my draftsmanship is usually a bit better, so I'm a little disappointed by how the weaknesses in the drawing are highlighted by the paint.
