Working a full time retail job leaves little time for weekend painting classes, so I turned to books. I purchased Acrylic Painting with Lee Hammond, and one of the first exercises was learning the Elements of Shading. Just painting random gray spheres seemed kind of boring, so this is my interpretation. The rainbow didn’t turn out quite like I envisioned, but it works for me.
