Student Statement

I take two painting classes, one in portraiture, one of them stiil-life or painting whatever you want using a picture. I decided on still-life and was attracted to metal objects. My instructor was fine, but I always loved Hall Groat’s paintings on the daily painters’ website. I seem to gravitate to realism type painting. So I ordered DVD’s on metals, glass, and fabric techniques. Very helpful! Especially with color, something I struggle with a great deal. So I combined what I learned from the DVD’s with my class instructor and I felt I achieved much more that way. I am grateful to have found Hall Groat’s instructional DVD ‘s.


Halls Critique

Thanks for posting this second beautiful piece.  The suggestion that I made relating to the table top on the cherries, also applies to this piece.  Your handling of the rear edge, however, works very well.  My hunch is that the bottom edge of the metallic canister should be a bit more elliptical, with more curvature.   Take a look at this link:
