"Great-Grandmother's Pitcher"
7 1/2 x 9 1/2 watercolor, matted $50
Clear glass and crystal is fun to paint and is about reflections. I sat up this simple stilllife and only used two basic colors , and of course left the white of the paper for the white. It seems overwhelming to paint clear glass, but after drawing in the pitcher, I first painted the darkest blues and lilttle by little built up the lighter blues and browns. It takes time and patience. This was a practice piece, but I like the way it turned out. Remember to click on all my paintings to see the details. Share my blog with your friends!
