This silver bowl was a great lesson on reflective surfaces. I put it together to paint as a demo for my class last week, then I thought "Holy Cow, I haven't painted a shiny silver surface in, like, a YEAR - why am I doing a DEMO with one?" Something like this really puts you through the paces, which is a good thing. And the ribbon was just fun, and gave a nice reflection inside the bowl. I just have to say... I have such a GREAT group of artists in my class... I'm so grateful for their enthusiasm and focus!
