I have a 1000 word Classics essay on the transition from black- to red-figure vases in Ancient Greece. I started around 9pm. It's 1pm and I've found myself 500 words in and playing Runescape.

I must be really good at procrastinating Very Happy= :D

They're two different techniques to vase-painting.

1000 words isn't that much... isn't that like two or three pages double spaced?

Embarassed Sorry. One time I wrote 1300 words or so in an hour. Wasn't a school essay though.

Maybe to Daniel it seems like it because of the subject. Ancient Greece is amazing to study.However the thought of doing an essay even if it was just a paragraph long on Vases?...Is painful.
I was just curious as to why if any does the color make.What does it mean?

English AP exam topics SUCK. This Greek vase thing actually sounds interesting.

There are tons of vases in the British Museum...

Why I could do 200 words alone on the proper pronunciation of Vase . Vayyz or Vahhz ?? Dried flowers or fresh flowers ? add 100 more words, Flowers planted in soil or left in water 100 more... "If ya can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit"

The secret is to drag it out like so;

"the transition from black- to red-figure vases in Ancient Greece, why do I think the greeks changed their figure-vases from black to red, it is an intresting thought of why greeks transitioned from black to red figure-vases. Now I will tell you why greece changed their vases from black to red."

See ? Tons of words all ready and I havent said a damn thing

Using phrases such as "I think" or "I believe" tend to devalue essays. I know my English teacher gave me hell the one time I accidentally put it in my own paper a couple of years ago.

" most experts believe " or "commonly thought" or "the pervasive belief " would work ?

As long as you back it up with evidence, you can say pretty much whatever you want in most cases. Laughing

It's pretty interesting, I just can't do the essay because I have the attention span of a goldfish with ADH- OMFG SHINY LOOK AT THE SHINY THING!!!!!! You can liken black-figure vases to colouring (with a crayon) a piece of paper. You draw the silhouette and then etch out details (like eyes, hair lines etc).

Red-Figure can be compared to outlining the character on a piece of paper, filling in the background and then adding detail.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
These are both sides of the same vase. The one with black people is (obviously) Black Figure while the other side is Red-Figure. The parts of the vase turn out red because the painted hasn't painted anything onto that area. If he wants an area of the vase to be black, he paints on something called slip which is lik really watery clay.

/Gigantic Vase-Painting info overload
