I love the perspective of the cup as well as the lighting and shading for the darker shadowy areas. Now take a look at Jeremy's and then mine respectively.
As you can see, our paintings are not nearly as masterful as Arianne's. Last night I was honestly quite disappointed to the point of being upset because I was expecting mine to come out looking similar to hers. I don't know why I thought that mine would be the spitting image of hers. I let myself get lost in emotion and ended up saying that I hated my painting. I have decided after sleeping on it, however, that I should appreciate the many other talents that I do have and perhaps step back and focus on the good things about my painting instead of the bad. For instance, I really like my background. I feel that it turned out quite nice. I love how Jeremy was able to master the shadow of the cup onto the saucer. That turned out quite well in his painting!
Aside from my little tantrum we enjoyed the evening very much. We are signed up to attend another session at a different locale in a week or so. I'll have to check out the dates, but it will be in time for Mother's Day and the subject for that week will be the perfect gift for moms!
