In week 12, instructor Cornelia Hernes will guide you through the intricate process of painting the soap dish in her still-life composition. You will learn the technique of using transfer paper to accurately redraw and reinforce the shapes and contours of your artwork. As Cornelia delves into the details of the soap dish, she emphasizes the importance of always referring back to the larger elements previously painted, ensuring a cohesive and harmonious composition. By the end of this session, you will have honed your skills in painting specific objects while maintaining the overall lighting logic of the painting.
