FIRST THE PEARL - A LESSON IN HOW TO LOOK ATTHINGS
An apprentice painter might learn how to hold a brush, mix colors or how to use a palette knife, but it mattersnothing if the same person does not learn how to 'look' at things, and to look with the eye of someone whowants to explain the world in terms of paint. After many years of learning to 'look' we come to understandthe nature of things and how they relate to each other.This first lesson is an entertaining introduction to give you some idea of what I mean by 'looking'. Don't betoo worried if the world I now introduce seems alien at first, because as you progress with the lessons, youwill begin to understand that the real joy of painting is not so much occupying your hands, as trulyunderstanding the laws, the lights and shades, and the memories of all the things around you.OK, I think I remember what a pearl looks like. Ah, its been so long between pearls. I will try to constructone from memory, first principles and logic.To begin, let us imagine the largest pearl in the world sits on a red table in a room with a blue ceiling. I amthe viewer and I view the perl from the front while behind me is a window. Outside it is a fine bright sunnyday.Now if the pearl was someone elses 'eye' we must imagine
what it would see!!
.It would see me, basic and a little crude - but that dosen't matter at this stage?The window in the same condition.
