First Day Teen Acrylic Camp

We did three 5x7 inch paintings today for the Acrylic teen class.
We looked at value first. 
Then we added color being aware of shadows and 
reflected light from the shiny white plates.
We also talked about why some things get accepted into shows and others don't. 
Could it be color, technique, point of view...?  
An unexpected angle gives the painting more interest. 
We also played with placement.
