Kay, you can just take over...
Sooo... I was in art class at my high school and we were working on this project.
The project is that we have to pick a Canadian artist, copy a painting they did and do a power point on them...
So I pick a girl painter from Canada... Picked a picture that she did... It was a horse of course! lol
Any way so I get started drawing out some areas of dark spots and highlights as well as the outline of the horse... I did this because I really SUCK at painting..
So I get started painting and my art teacher comes over and she starts talking to me about the acrillic (SP?) paints and how to get the best out of them and then she turns my picture around to face her and SHE starts painting it..
Okay, fine, she messes it up a little (She paints the Areas that are supposed to be black, whit and vice versa) Well I know I can fix it so whatever.
She then tells me I need a colored picture... I had a black and white picture printed out but the computers at school only print black and white.
So she gets a colored picture and tells me the horse is a chestnut but its not.. it is a black horse with brown under tones.
She proceeds to paint over my black with brown... straight brown... Okay fine, its now going to be a brown horse...
At the end of class I see her take my picture and put it on a standy thing and take my paints... She starts painting it...
SOO today, I come to class with "my" picture completely done..... She then proceeds to give me "my" painting and starts talking to me about how "we" yes, WE need to do a few things more...
My job today was to paint a solid purple background that was very small and to paint the eye ball... SHE did everything else!
So now I didn't even get to paint my own painting.... wow great day...
Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
