A Tisket a Tasket

In Frank O’Cain’s Abstract Watercolor class at the Art Students League you never know what you are going to get (and I say that even though I am one of the people creating the still life set up from which everyone works).  This painting, A Tisket a Tasket, was based on a still life with two baskets (among other things).

Do you remember the nursery rhyme, “A tisket a tasket, a green and yellow basket…”?  This set up had two baskets, one yellow and one black/brown (nope, no green but, hey, I used my artistic imagination).

The week before, I did a quick sketch of some books, a flower, a star plate and a vase to create Books n Such.

With the complicated set up at the League (for which I am partly responsible), the key is deciding what to focus on, what to paint.  Trust me, with both of these paintings, what I was seeing was much more complicated.
