Week 4 – Flame

This week’s lesson was a subject that I couldn’t wait to try!

We started off by looking at some images that my art teacher brought in on her laptop to give us an idea of how other artists had tackled the subject.  It was amazing seeing the way the flame had been painted and the way the light  was depicted even if the light source wasn’t visible to the viewer.

We then sat down to have a go for ourselves, I had taken my own candle in as I really like it.

Scented CandleThe camera was able to see the halo around the flame better than I could see with a naked eye so, I used this photo as a reference for putting that in.

I have posted my attempt under the Pastel Paintings tab I used Pastel Pencils.  I’m really happy with it and I really hope you like it too.
